furniture in the forest: prostoria sets design objects amid croatian woodland for 'revisiting analogue’

set on a forest pavilion in croatia, furniture manufacturing company prostoria, in collaboration with designers numen/for use and simon morasi piperčić, has introduced the ‘revisiting analogue’ project. with architecture events all over the world being cancelled due to the COVID-19 and the digital world taking over, ‘revisiting analogue’ addresses the growing nostalgia for an analogue experience, through a diverse furniture design showcase.

articulated through orthogonal ‘islands’ of man-made forms set in a strict grid, the pavilion contrasts with the scattered array of trees and bushes. this dialogue between geometry, nature and people provides a surreal setting for experiencing prostoria’s top artifacts. some of these include the polygon and oblique armchairs (both indoor & outdoor), modular sofas layout and absent, strain chair collection, piun chairs, osmo outdoor chairs and leg-end, the newest armchair that transforms into a chaise lounge.

the pavilion’s volume is emphasized by the functional clustering of the furniture, as if each island is its own home with transparent walls and roof. the forest pavilion was conceived around inversed digitalism; it has a digital flair but is analogue in its process and materials. the pavilion and event for the croatian design-architecture community have also served as the set for prostoria’s film by rene gallo.

 

 

 

 

the film addresses humanity’s nostalgia for materiality and nature due to the constant shifts between analogue and digital, a kind of augmented reality in which the digital has impregnated our lives more than ever during the recent lockdown. ‘revisiting analogue’ is prostoria’s attempt to digitally share the experience of materiality, through the forest room and products that embody nature-based materials and design. all of this has a grounding effect and evokes inner comfort and stability.
