Lost Stories

A Collection

Recycled wood from found antique furniture

Lost Stories presents a collection of furniture and objects featuring a deconstructive reimagination of antique furniture with the aim of passing on the stories of people and objects lost in time. Encountering furniture that has outlasted the unknown lives of those who created them, lived with them, and left marks on them, the collection intends to evoke a sense of humanity by delving into objects’ encapsulated stories and memories.

 

By deconstructing thrifted antique furniture into components, Lost Stories returns furniture to a raw material state and liberates narratives and puzzles of the past from their pre-conceived forms. The new materiality includes elements such as dirty paint, scratches, glue marks, and dust. By collaging the deconstructed materials into a minimalistic form and adding the illustrative silhouette of the original object back to the new design, the collection continues the reincarnation of an object as well as the story of life behind it in a sustainable way.
