Sofa KERMAN by Philipp Mainzer and Farah Ebrahimi has been selected for the project ‘Future Archive’ at Biennale Interieur 2016 in Kortrijk. Organised in collaboration with creative agency Baroness O., the project gathers a selection of the newest and most innovative furniture.
First presented during this year’s Salone del Mobile, modular sofa KERMAN will be on show with fabric Alice which is exclusively woven for e15 in Belgium. With its vibrant colours and imaginative pattern, the fabric creates an intriguing contrast to the reduced and sculptural silhouette of the sofa. A round pouf in Kvadrat’s Raf Simmons Vidar fabric complements the combination of seating modules.
Future Archive is a depot, a museum and an archive all in one, presenting inspiring objects in straightforward rows. The simplicity of the presentation allows each object to stand out in its own strong and innovative form. To show the possibilities of KERMAN and the other objects in the archive, a group of creatives will be invited to create a unique visual installation with the pieces on show. Each day a different stylist, photographer or designer will create his own vision, in his own field and interest, with all of the creatives having a different approach, highlighting different pieces from the selection. Photo and/or video and social media are key elements in each act.
Offering a versatile program of exhibitions, installations and events, the Biennale Interieur Kortrijk takes place from 14 – 23 October 2016.
