paul coudamy‘s random resurrection for Af83 is a set of custom made furniture based on second hand objects from e-bay which have been remixed. it is like a game of combinations, where instead of drawing out exacting forms, design is born from reconfiguring existing pieces. as well as giving a second life to discarded furniture or transforming your grandmother’s table into a new design, the project aimed to question the shape of conventional furniture. random resurrection mutates common objects into new ones, while still maintaining their original typologies. the collection is made up of a meeting table and 10 chairs.

the meeting table is constructed from three e-bay tables which have been assembled into one piece creating a hybrid object. a heavily ornate central pedestal for the table maintains two aerial extensions supported by a thin leg. a wood veneered table and blue tray are inserted into the main stand resulting in a 10 person table.

purchasing a selection of archetypal, cheap wooden chairs, coudamy dismantled them and recombined them into new arrangements offering new typologies for the chairs.paul coudamy: random resurrection image courtesy of benjamin boccas
