The inspiration initially started with research into classical ornamental furniture periods such as the Rococo, Baroque, Renaissance, to name a few. Both Orson and Quinten have a fascination with ornamental and decorative furniture and questioned why there is such an absence of excessive decorations within contemporary design.
This collection aimed to create a collection of unfamiliar decorative furniture that touches the boundaries between aesthetics and functionality. As a result of this, they transitioned themselves as modern-day craftsmen by a time-consuming design process that reflects itself within the decorated embellishments.
The pieces were initially developed with highly detailed graphical depictions of our interpretation of modern-day ornaments.
