With #wfh becoming the new norm, this collaboration pays homage to this spirit of adaptation and open interpretation of spaces and objects we have taken up as a nation this year. The simple structure of the stool and ottoman allows them to be used in many manners, transforming instantly from a stool to a coffee table, from an ottoman into a bench or side table for drinks and snack, from a seat to a work desk. The cubes can be lain on any side and are designed to be great stand-alone pieces, or arranged together to create a larger setting. The 3 colours available grants the set more versatility and styling options.

Colours available: White, Teal, Rose Pink

Materials: Internal structure is made of plywood and solid wood. Foam filled. Upholstered fabric is a linen cotton mix.
Upholstery is fitted fabric, non-removable.

Stool - H40 x D30 x W30 cm

About the design:


 

A playful deconstruction of the original Quaderna desk, the Grafunkt x Onlewo collaboration introduces a unique tile design inspired by the Asian vernacular, manifested on a stool and ottoman.

“I’ve seen many works from Onlewo that is inspired by the Peranakan tiles that can be found in the old Singapore architecture landscape and every tile tells a Singapore story be it flora, fauna or patterns inspired by Islamic mathematic. This prompted me to investigate the works of Superstudio, an Italian architecture firm in the 60s that designed the Zanotta Quaderna desk, a tile-like grid patterned on the archetype of a table. Not exactly a homage to the original design but I think it is my way of looking at modernism with a bit of Asian context, to lend a bit of soul and familiarity instead of a utopian look for this collaboration to celebrate our 55th National Day.”
– Nathan Yong, Designer and Founder of Grafunkt

“The tile design is a celebration of the multi-cultural heritage of Singapore and the creative architectural designs our forefathers gifted us. Singapore today is the result of generations of cultural interplay which is reflected in our physical environment in the form of colour, form and texture. This design, named Singa Flore, made up of small flowers and leaves, is my interpretation of the diversity and vibrancy Singapore enjoys even though it is a small country.”
– Mike Tay, Designer and Founder of Onlewo
