Studio Komok’s furniture explores the meaning of diagonals

 

The Átló collection, designed by Studio Komok, showcases the elegance and functionality of diagonal lines. This project, featuring an armchair and a sideboard, explores playful geometry, emphasizing the symbolic and structural layered meanings of diagonals. Known for their efficiency in linking distant points, diagonals are commonly seen in structures like barn doors and bridges. In the Átló collection, they also represent the bridging of different disciplines and individuals through communication and knowledge exchange. Crafted with minimal material usage and basic technology, the furniture collection features a simple yet distinct visual language. The design by the studio utilizes custom plywood with a dark walnut veneer line running through the center, developed locally. This minimalist approach allows for unique forms depending on the viewer’s perspective, highlighting the symbolism of diagonals in both form and meaning.

Átló collection reflects the connecting role of Hungary 

 

Studio Komok designed and manufactured the collection in Hungary, reflecting the country’s cultural role as a connector between East and West. Produced by the local carpenter workshop Barlang Műhely, the furniture by the Budapest-based studio incorporates cushions made by Vándor Studio, a local textile workshop. The Átló collection was brought to life through a curated competition organized by the Hungarian Fashion & Design Agency (HFDA) and curated by Rossana Orlandi. The project was showcased at Milan Design Week in the Milano Triennale during the Design Walk in Budapest exhibition, also curated by Rossana Orlandi and organized by HFDA.
