Artistically Corroded Furniture

The furniture pieces in The Ordinary Family collection look like they have been corroded by a mysterious, colorful substance. Upon closer inspection, it becomes obvious that they have been artistically made to look like that. The ‘substance’ that appears to be eating away at their surfaces are different materials such as golden beads and colorful plastic confetti.

Designed by Netherlands-based designer Ka-Lai Chan, The Ordinary Family collection made its debut during OBJECT Rotterdam 2012 and is now being displayed at the Judy Straten Gallery.

Inspired by personal family observations, The Ordinary Family collection is comprised of five pieces: rocking horse, coffee table, side table, praying chair and the No Sign of Design chair. It deals with common concepts of parental drug abuse and feminine vanity.
