The Epilogue – Prologue Collection Bridges Gap Between Object &

In a way, the epilogue – prologue collection is inspired by story structure, as its name suggests. Specifically, it's comprised of nine pieces that address the inception of an idea (prologue) as well as the end product (epilogue). A beautiful concept, it bridges the gap between object and human. For instance, Lovebird is comprised of two side tables that can be joined together to create a bigger one to accomodate more people.

The epilogue – prologue collection was created by Design Soil, a collective from the product design department at Kobe Design University in Japan. According to Design Milk, "The project is run by professors and students whose goal is to re-evaluate design practices and let the young designers create at their own pace, much like plants growing in soil."
