jean baptiste soubias: diktat! crisis furnitures

bang! executive chair / interior chair, red lacquered mdf

diktat is a range of furniture containing items related  to design standards today as chairs, lamps, storage … ironically on the ambient doom, my work is a satire of the story-telling media. you will find the presentation version of each product designed and photorealistic, for one narrative and the other direction, the others are descriptive and technical. playing on a memory now international, each object is a derivative of fantasy turning around its original fonction for light, store, sit … taking position against a backward-looking design Diktat wants a range of objects of this semantically committed present. by advocating simple design it provides a qualitative production and a optimized cost of production.

aaah! the last stair / three-drawer dresser, red lacquered panels

arg… hung bulb / suspension cord to knot + socket

crash! swings / wall shelf with variable spacing, red lacquered mdf

hush hush… the watcher / hinged wall lamp-shaped aluminum

ouch! d.d.r / clothesline wrapped in red pvc + clip-on pins

drip drop… drip light / tubular lamp structure – red lacquered aluminum /pmma + deflector tungsten halogen source
