I was snooping around on the Behance Network and came across The living with friends cabinet by Mark Bendow Interior Environments. Typically this is really not my flavor but the more I looked at it the more I liked it. I wondered how it would look if each piece was done in a different type of wood. I could see little figures “stuck” in the boxes holding themselves up.
The dynamic of states like falling, floating or swinging is just hardly applied onto a static body. But if we think about dancing or acrobatics it becomes clear that the most dynamic and exciting figures are based on the interaction of several individuals. To support and hold each other and therefore to counteract external forces ones could not bear alone
The single, one-leged pieces of the ensemble couldn ́t stand by themselves. Leaning on each other they find stability as an ensemble without losing their individual dynamic character. By the interaction of simplicity in color and form, dynamic of shape and the citation of an emo- tional idea, designer Mark Bendow reflects contemporary trends and simply reduces them to a common denominator.
