We met sometime in 2017 at our first shouten store, when we were still tucked away in a little unassuming corner in a dated building along Kitchener Road. We happed to be one of the few creatives in the district and got invited to join the "1KM" initiative organised by Industry+.
It was pretty much one of our first collaborative work with a different creative discipline. Karyn and PC in the furniture trade and us in the fashion business. As our relationship stretches over the years, we have turned from collaborators to eventually friends. We have always enjoyed work with creatives from other discipline and to explore the industry that was more unknown to us.
Cloud is a collection of furniture designed and built in Singapore.
It was designed during the time when Covid-19 first reached the shores of Singapore, and the country in its version of a lockdown. In that time of chaos, Karyn felt the need for her designs to be minimal yet functional to create calm environments for users to feel at ease in.
Cloud Stool - Blue
Cloud Stool - Blue
This collection is built in plywood, with colour applied in a gradient to bring visual lightness to the pieces. The curved edges of the stools and table rest firmly on the ground, and transition upwards to reveal the characteristic stripes of plywood layers.
These versatile pieces are suitable for indoor spaces. They can be used as a seat, table or sculpture. Colours can be customised.
