‘Community‘ eco dresser by Rob Southcott
Rob Southcott, furniture, product, and interior designer has created Community a furniture piece that is part dresser , part room divider made from “locally produced reclaimed lumber species assembled together in an abstract configuration,” Southcott calls what he does “sculptural-based design that blurs the line between art and design.” The piece has a wonderful randomness about it- like a child trying to pile up a set of building blocks and yet has a very clear inherent design rationale . Community embodies Southcott’s belief in diversity. Like a vertical wooden collage, the furniture unites interesting and individually distinct pieces to make a statement about both harmony and humanity. Each ‘Community’ piece is unique and yet successfully highlights the whole and the parts that make such a composition possible. Definitely a reason to re-clutter……and fill those drawers!
