La Consolle Fatale: extra-ordinary femininity design


La Consolle Fatale: il design dalla stra-ordinaria femminilità

La Consolle Fatale: extra-ordinary femininity design

La Consolle Fatale is a wooden frame furniture piece, dressed with fabric. It interprets the textile element as a source of identity – just like an outfit worn by a woman – and plays on the ambiguity of considering the same furniture as a dressing body. The project investigates the textile element on the furniture, not as an upholstery fabric, but both as a "structural part" and as a dress worn by a woman. La consolle Fatale has been exhibited at Fuorisalone Milan (DesignWeek) by Italian studios: Silvia Guarnieri Design and Spectacularch! by Sandra Marchesi and Francesca Perani.

La Consolle Fatale is a wooden frame furniture piece, dressed with fabric. The Console Fatale interprets the textile element as a source of identity – just like an outfit worn by a woman – and plays on the ambiguity of considering the same furniture as a dressing body.
The project (which its backstage is fully visible online at www.laconsollefatale.tumblr.com ) investigates the textile element on the furniture, not as an upholstery fabric, but both as a "structural part" and as a dress worn by a woman.
La Consolle Fatale è un mobile-contenitore con struttura in legno e ri-vestimento in tessuto che interpreta l’elemento tessile come fattore identitario - come avviene per un abito indossato dalla persona –giocando sull’ambiguità di considerare l’arredo stesso come un corpo da vestire.
Il progetto (visibile online in tutte le sue fasi di lavorazione www.laconsollefatale.tumblr.com) nasce dall’idea di indagare sul mobile l’elemento tessile, interpretandolo non come tessuto da rivestimento, ma come “parte strutturale” da un lato e come abito indossato dall’altro

At first, the fabric is functional to formally define the volume of the storage compartment: a flexible, skin-color fabric surrounds and covers the entire design object, revealing what of valuable is inside.
On the dressing concept side, the furniture is ironically compared to a female body, naked and then dressed up by a caricature and irreverent language. The Idea is to declare a different vision of female stereotypes of aesthetic perfection. The furniture plays a naïf shapely woman, featured by an unlikely and declared "fuzz" on the body.
Sotto il primo profilo, il tessuto è funzionale per definire formalmente il volume del vano contenitore: un tessuto elasticizzato color pelle avvolge e ricopre l’intero oggetto di design, lasciando intravedere quanto di prezioso è contenuto al suo interno.
Per quanto riguarda invece il concetto dell’indossare, si e’ paragonato ironicamente il mobile ad un corpo femminile, nudo e poi vestito, con un linguaggio caricaturale e dissacrante, in risposta all’overdose quotidiana di stereotipi femminili di perfezione estetica. Il mobile rappresenta così una donna dalle forme abbondanti e dall’aspetto naif caratterizzato da una dichiarata e improbabile “peluria” sul corpo.

The entire graphic dimension of the object is explicited, with humour, at the intersection of function and artistic expression, allowing customization through a variable of coating’s characterizations. In the proposed version, the furniture is wearing a silk square texture cloth-skirt, ready to be used outdoors on a pic-nic.
La Console Fatale becomes a fatal woman, from time to time, romantic, chic, dark, rock ... but remains, after all, simply a body ......
L’intera dimensione grafica dell’oggetto si esprime, ironicamente, nell’intersezione tra funzione ed espressione artistica permettendo diverse caratterizzazioni attraverso la personalizzazione del rivestimento. Nella versione proposta, il mobile si presenta con una tovaglia-gonna di seta a quadri, pronto per essere utilizzato all’aperto, per una merenda pomeridiana. Ma La Consolle
Fatale diventa, di volta in volta, romantica, chic, dark, rock … rimanendo, in fondo, semplicemente un corpo……
La Consolle Fatale: extra-ordinary femininity design
"With our design we would like to turn away from the “approved” furniture concept, very often linked to "impersonal acceptance", and we have taken the freedom to digress in a greater artistic expression." Designers said.
La Console Fatale is the expression of a design that moves away from the idea of product to become the emotional extension of whom is owning it and, will friendly observe the reaction of those who hardly will be able not to smile when seeing it….
“Con questo lavoro ci siamo volute sottrarre al concetto di arredo, sempre più spesso inteso in un’ottica di “omologazione impersonale”, prendendoci la libertà di sconfinare in una direzione di maggiore espressività artistica.” Affermano le progettiste.
La Consolle Fatale, in sostanza, è l’espressione di un design che si allontana dall’idea di prodotto per diventare estensione emotiva di chi la possiede e che, amichevolmente, osserverà la reazione di chi, a fatica, riuscirà a non lasciarsi scappare un sorriso vedendola….
