“Chroma: Color Your Furniture,” an exhibit of the De La Salle College of Saint Benilde’s Interior Design Program, gave mallgoers a glimpse of a different kind of borderless furniture design at the atrium of S Maison.
A joint project of De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde’s Interior Design Program and S Maison, the exhibit features fun, colorful and unique furniture pieces.
The pieces explore depths of design and construction through traditional and digital hybrid approach.
A partial fulfillment of the Interior Design Program’s Furniture Design and Construction 1 class, the subject focuses on designing “free-standing” furniture and following step-by-step construction techniques. This aims to help and hone the students to design a core collection of different types of furniture pieces while exploring various forms and materials for their very own prototypes.
The students drew inspiration from various themes: from nature like coral reefs and twilight sky to historical concepts like the 20th Century Rotary Dial and Piet Mondrian’s “The Composition”. Some were also inspired by iconic furniture designs like Ito Kish’s Baluster collection, the Queen Anne lowboy and even the Mariposa and Batibot chairs.
