Eindhoven, The Netherlands – Design Academy Eindhoven graduate Annemarie Scheibner presented a furniture collection at Dutch Design Week inspired by behaviour associated with arriving home after a long day.
The Coming Home range explores the connection between personal wellness and living spaces. Each item of furniture relates to one of three stages associated with routine. Pieces include large smooth stone pebbles designed to relax the owner’s bare feet, and hanging rope-like structures for hanging coats and to pull on to stretch the muscles.
‘My project is about giving attention to physical wellbeing,’ the designer tells LS:N Global. ‘The furniture creates a path to follow as you enter your home. In this routine you take off your shoes and jacket and unwind, and the objects facilitate an opportunity to stretch your body and relax.’
Scheibner’s project was part of the Man and Living: Delight section of the Our Way graduate exhibition curated by Ilse Crawford. For more examples of innovative projects at Dutch Design Week, look out for LS:N Global’s coverage in our Seed and Shows sections.
