Great ideas don’t appear often and when they do, they certainly make the difference!
This is the case of Tino Seubert (29.12.1986) a talented young designer from Germany that, having Italy as his base, is inspired by great historical moments for his creations.
All started with his Forming History project that consists of selecting a number of significant moments in history, all of which involved furniture, and using each of them to develop new forms for furniture pieces. Tino used as his reference photographic records of those specific events that include, amongst others, the Nuremberg trials of 1945/46 or the Liu Xiaobo Nobel Peace Prize 2010 award.
The furniture that came out of this project holds something of the historical importance of these moment that are, according to Tino, registered as abstract shadows, deformations or traces on the newly designed objects. In this way history functions as the main catalyst that is actually “Forming Furniture”.
