Fancy-Routine is the latest collection by design studio Supaform, consisting of a shelf, a chair, a coffee table, a bench and a lamp. Exhibited for the first time at the virtual exhibition Offsite Online, the objects are the product of a reflection by Maxim Scherbakov, founder of the studio, on the temporariness of design, interested in observing how it changes and transforms over time. For example, what do we have left of an object once its aesthetic and material qualities degrade with time, if not its functional qualities?
Starting with this question Scherbakov designed objects with clean, sinuous lines, using an apparently rusty and deformed metal. The furnishing element where this material research is made clearer and more explicit is the bookcase, for which the support surface has been ‘perforated’ by an organic form, imitating the natural deterioration that a sheet of metal would experience over time.
