CHLOÉ DURÁN STONE
MA DESIGN: FURNITURE
BO'OY – Transitory forms, light & colour
As a designer, Durán Stone aims to raise our perception and awareness of objects within a space and of the space itself, working with the connections between them. Through the exploration of light and colour, it is possible to incorporate unexpected and unconventional elements that can change the ambience of a room or setting as well as our experience within it.
Light and colours affect our well being consciously or subconsciously and when used in combination with the personality of each object, they can influence our moods taking us anywhere from tranquility to playfulness and joy. In this way, objects and furniture become a transitory reflection of the surrounding space in a given moment.
The pieces in the Bo´oy Collection (meaning shadow in the Mayan language) consist of reflective and transparent coloured forms which go beyond their functional purpose to enhance the space in which they are placed.
The sculptural, abstract and colourful elements of the pieces trigger the senses, bringing surprise, curiosity, fun and change into everyday spaces. The moveable acrylic pieces can be arranged in infinite compositions and reveal themselves in different ways depending on the light and position in which they are placed; through this uniqueness their form and essence go beyond the idea of furniture.
