Micheline Nahra -- a graduate of Design Academy Eindhoven, debuts a piece of deconstructed furniture that "tells the story of loss."
The project's starting point is a four-person dinner setting. Micheline Nahra reenvisions a different scenario with the same components, embracing the quality of absence. The end product is almost unrecognizable from the original.
The deconstructed furniture is a combination of one chair and one table. The silhouettes are highly sculptural. Dubbed 'A Dinner for One,' the piece is an amalgamation of storylines. It "honors the old, while making space for the new." This, in a sense, acknowledges the emotional connotations that might come with absence and loss. On the other hand, it also tackles the process of reconstruction, nodding perhaps to the act of learning to cope.
