Source Materials collection by MSDS

February 22nd, 2016 by retail design blog

Canadian studio MSDS has unveiled a lighting and furniture range, which includes a chair based on a design that dates back to the 1600s. The Source Materials range includes chairs, tables and pendant lights, with each object made entirely from just one material. MSDS’ Ancestor Chair features a wide wooden seat that rests on three legs with slanted bases. Its back includes a curved panel, which is attached to the seat by five wooden slates. To create the chair the studio referenced an early design from the 17th century, which predates the iconic Windsor chair.

The collection’s pendant lights feature minimal aluminium shades, which have been sand-cast to create a textured surface. Meanwhile, the Ware table lamp features a cylindrical stoneware base and petal-shaped shade that have been slip-cast in one piece. The collection also includes a trio of tables, which have similar shapes and dimensions but are each made in a different material – aluminium, wood and composite sheet. The aluminium version rests on an A-shaped frame that features two central slanted legs, while the composite has an upper and lower table top joined together by panels. The wood table similarly has an upper and lower surface, with a pair of shorter and taller legs.
