Designers Gabriella Gustafson & Mattias Ståhlbom of TAF have created a collection of storage cabinets and tables for new brand Pieces with large interchangeable feet made from wood, marble or porcelain.
Called Trotters, the series comprises low birch benches and table tops in glass with optional birch cabinets that can be stacked in different configurations.
Silicon rings in white or orange sit between the feet and the surfaces they support.
The following information is from TAF:
A new Swedish platform dedicated to all possible objects related to our everyday spaces.
Pieces are both creators and curators focused on the unique and personal, built through the craft, skill and quality of Swedish production.
Pieces was established in 2011 and grew out of a number of ideas that we wanted to develop in a more independent and free context.
Our name reflects our focus on creating individual pieces and objects. Sometimes a single item, sometimes a family.
One, or many, connected or independent. Every piece will be a new narrative.
The first furniture collection from Pieces is “Trotters” - a small family of low tables and open cabinets designed by Gabriella Gustafson & Mattias Ståhlbom from TAF.
Trotters are like characters from a cartoon, or small friends.
Working with proportion and twisting the balance of the expected in a cabinet or table, the attention has been focused on the often forgotten and understated foot.
Playing with simple geometry, the result is both witty and surprising.
By altering only the materials of the foot, the collection provides many possibilities in a very simple way.
The feet are available in wood, marble, or white glazed porcelain, carrying tables and cabinets of wood and glass.
Additional details in pearl white and orange silicone.
High quality materials combined with Swedish craft and tradition.
Accompanying the furniture collection is a first edition print from Kyuhyung Cho.
A contemporary look based on the spirit of Trotters.
Screen printed by hand and framed with the same birch wood used in the furniture collection.
Pieces first exhibition was presented in collaboration with NK Inredning on February 7-11th at Nordiska Kompaniet, Stockholm. Trotters is exclusively available at NK.
