Collines Leaves the Function of its Distinctive Features Up to the User

If you were to observe Collines by Ferreol Babin without any other objects around, you might struggle to discern its specific function. The peculiar cluster of three surfaces in varying heights and textures might be used in a number of different ways.

What the designer hoped to achieve with this piece was to deliver an object that could be unique and complex in its own way, but be capable of serving several purposes. Here, minimalism was swapped for whimsicality of form and this odd object proves to perform.

Collines by Ferreol Babin can be used as a multilevel placemat or a quirky and contemporary cutting board. The slits in the material may aid the work of a knife or provide slots for holding pencils on a desk.
