Real Non-Real – Formosa Coat Stand in Blue Flock, 2022
A bright blue, flocked edition of the the 'Formosa' coat stand which means curvy in Italian. The piece is intended as a catch-all for the domestic space. A coat stand and key tray for the entryway, a bedside table and enemy to the infamous ‘floordrobe’, or for catching and drying towels, a place to rest your jewelry, and a temporary home to those precious garments that wait patiently for hand wash day. It’s about a dialogue between objects and furniture. The design makes use of vertical space rather than bulking outward, this distribution of weight not only makes it more stable than other coat stands but also takes up less space, making it perfect for all spaces big and small.
Real Non-Real is a Naarm/Melbourne based furniture project run by multidisciplinary designer Brigitte Ower-Buccianti. Real Non-Real is interested in the performance, rituals, and gestures of the everyday. Taking a research-based approach to design by looking at the inherent narrative of furniture, the poetics of daily life and the spatial relationship between objects and the body, RNR aims to challenge the current notions of traditional furniture.
