Lars LerupThe Life and Death of Objects: Autobiography of a Design Project
Rethinking the fundamentals of planning
Lars Lerup’s conceptual explorations as a designer and thinker have been inspired by philosophers and artists from Foucault to Beckett. Lerup’s furniture designs elude consumer culture. They conform neither to what is commonly understood as useful nor to what is typically regarded as necessary. They question the assumed functions of furniture and, at the same time, their assigned place in space. His pieces interrogate their roles and positions and introduce a disturbing or at least disconcerting note to conventional floor plans.
This autobiography of a design project is about rendering visible the consumerism that is driving the current economically motivated expansion of our cities, and dealing with the consequences for the environment and society.
