FURNITURE WITH CHARACTER

  • Comment
UPDATE

Tom Housden is the creator of Homo Faber, a conceptual installation that was recently unveiled at the Bartlett Summer Show. The familiar forms of chair, table and crockery have been manipulated to suggest the personalities and relationships of a recently departed dining party. 'The idea that character could be visually read was popularised in the 19th century, ' says Housden, 'when the growth of cities like London forced character judgments on appearances. Domestic collections of objects also became social signifiers. This project places this school of thought in a modern context, exploring the relationship between subject and object.'
