A place to sit

posted in: NEWS | 0

Again Marie’s teaching at the Department of Architecture, Design and Media Technology at Aalborg University has resulted in a public exhibition, this time at Friis in Aalborg.This year Line has planned the exhibition together with the students since Marie is on maternity leave. The exhibition displays 5 installations interrelating architecture, furniture and construction, and is the result of a new course developed for the 1st semester Master students.

A chair can invite us to sit up straight and focused as on a lecture stool, it can embrace us as a soft upholstry of a lounge chair; it can also direct our attention towards other persons, perhaps even imply a kiss as in the ‘tete á tete’. In exploring the architectural potential of the furniture scale it has been Marie’s idea with the course and exhibition to attribute the same subtle nuances of sensuous invitations into the architectural scale.
