«Hidden Entourage»

Late in post-pandemic 2021 a stunningly abundant Palazzo Brancaccio in Rome will host a solo exhibition by Supaform, a Moscow-based design studio.
A collection of eight objects disguised as furniture pieces will temporarily fill this copiously decorated venue, connecting centuries of art and design heritage.
»Hidden Entourage« is a visual experiment that offers a beholder to get rid of an assumption that design is doomed to serve a utilitarian function.
For once we stop expecting day-to-day objects to serve us, once we agree to let go of total control over them, they shine with pure emotion and undeniable beauty that does not need a reason.

Normative Armchair

The armchair was created as a part of the «Normative» collection, which was shown in Milan Design Week 2019. This surreal “Normative” collection makes advances to the Soviet everyday life of the ’50-’70s and it’s features. The Collection is a Supaform’s thoughts about the existence of a fantasy soviet reality in which neo-classicism was not been forced out by the principle of utility and efficiency. Under such circumstances, the furniture would remain normative and would not lose its originality and uniqueness at the same time. This modern armchair is made of high quality wood with a pronounced fiber pattern.
