What if Your Everyday Mid-Century Furniture Was Suddenly Useless?
February 3rd, 2017 by msa

Everybody loves a good and classic mid-century furniture piece, so it’d be a disaster if we suddenly told you they all became completely… useless. Only, it’s much more than that.

This odd and unique idea came to life when french photographer Patrice Letarnec decided to create a collection of “Prank Furniture“. This particular series Uncomfortable depicts iconic mid-century tables and chairs re-thought in a very deformed way, making them art pieces.

We can see chairs with protruding seats, precariously unbalanced legs, and alarmingly uneven surfaces. Above is the reinterpretation of the Softshell chair by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, 2009.

For his Uncomfortable series, Letarnec decided to turn all those aesthetically pleasing pieces of furniture we all love into the absurdly impractical. By manipulating the key characteristics of some of the world’s most recognizable design objects, like Jean Prouvé’s Standard SP chair, which is missing half of one of its legs. A Home Design Ideas team favorite has got to be the wooden posts coming out of Hee Welling and HAY’s lounge sofa. You could also see how Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec’s Softshell Chair featured a fin-shaped appendix protruding from its seat.

Thus, sofas are readily positioned on terraces, traditional rugs are showcased in contemporary settings, and workstations and chairs find truly mobile applications.

Inspirations 2017/2018

Like a remedy to the interminable racket of words and images, silence has a calming effect on the hyperactive, garrulous and loud times we live in. Home is a place where calm is restored and a growing desire for serenity can be expressed. Lifestyle and style give us the ‘silent treatment’. Beauty is unburdened from the artifice of pointless ornamentation and devotes itself to a quest for the essential. The reduction of materials, geometric abstraction, transparency, halo effects, wireframe structures, ethereal hues and black and white comprise the formal rules of silence. The spartan simplicity of archetypal shapes foster contemplative moments during which the mind is at rest. Sensitive, discrete and elegant objects re-establish inner tranquillity. Please do not disturb this sensual, poetic, harmonious and luxurious minimalism. Shh

Featured on the ELLE Decor and AD 100 lists of the world’s preeminent talents in architecture and interior design, Jean-Louis Deniot has long been in the business of creating atmospheres. His décors are his playground, spaces where spontaneity and magic are de rigueur. Recognized worldwide for his eclectic and emblematic interiors, Jean-Louis Deniot plays in a multiplicity of repertoires, never sticking to purity of style, rather letting his academic training translate into a vocabulary that is both informal and bold.

Minimalism is not for Jean-Louis Deniot as neither is excess. Balance and osmosis is what he is after, offsetting the sometimes rigid facet of architecture with an inmost vision of refinement, comfort and openness making his creations around the world havens to revel in.

materials and textures tempered with subtle color palettes, muted tones and impeccable lighting. At the crossroads between classical terminology and contemporary aesthetics, Jean-Louis Deniot’s interiors are serene, elegant and dramatic as awash with nods to other time periods, yet never typical or literal.
