ROLU




Hardly the most elegant of materials, plywood and Oriented strand board (OSB) nevertheless have a peculiar charm to them, and various artists and designers have been drawn to them over the years. ROLU (Rosenlof/Lucas), a Minnesotta-based design studio, is the latest. Their newest series of furniture is designed to be as simple and pared-down as possible, each piece made from a few sheets of engineered wood. Whilst not for everyone, there's a definite aesthetic satisfaction to the shapes they've prescribed for the range, which offer a number of interesting variations on the chair, and a very simple table. Unashamedly referencing projects from the 1970s such as Donald Judd's iconic plywood box series Untitled 1976, and Enzo Mari's brilliant Autoprogettazione DIY furniture series, ROLU seem to have succeeded in creating a range of pieces that works as both sculpture and functional furniture. http://rolustudio.com/
