Furniture Filling Vacant Spaces
Around the Corner is an exhibition of four new pieces by Amanda Levete of Future Systems. The limited-edition pieces “explore the relationship between the void in the corner of a room and the response that inhabiting this space invokes.” Each of the four unique pieces is made from different materials and were carved using digital technology and then finished by hand.
According to Levete:
The corners of a room are often lost spaces, rarely exploited for the display of either art or furniture. I wanted to address this with pieces specifically designed to take up these vacant spaces…The pieces are about creating a spatial relationship between the corner and object – where the space in between is as important as the object itself.
