The Unimaginary Project by Beatrice Cordara
In this Instagram-obsessed world we live in, it sometimes feel as if products are created just to look good in an exhibition, magazine or on a mobile phone screen. Beatrice Cordara, who just graduated from the Masters course at the Design Academy Eindhoven, questions this obsession with the perfect image by seeking inspiration from images which are corrupt or flawed and turning them into real products such as tables and chairs. In doing so she has, unwittingly perhaps, created products which are remarkably beautiful and, dare we say it, image perfect.

Detractors of minimalism often decry the cold, impersonal nature of the style. However, when executed intelligently, minimalist designs can be surprisingly expressive. The furniture collections of designer Niko Koronis is a case in point.
Founded by furniture designers Josefine Krabbe Munck, Kamma Rosa Schytte, Kasper Kyster and Lærke Ryom, Ukurant showcases experimental products from emerging designers which straddle the border between art and commerce.
