About Charlotte Friis : The relevance of design comes from telling stories that make people reflect on their lives. The design process starts with changing the perception of normal objects into multi-functional ones. The originality comes from mixing together the normality with the styling of basic objects parts, giving them another layer of meaning that brings out a new ingenuous way of usage. The conceptual overcoating of items makes them more fun and interactive, and as an ultimate goal - bringing joy, to the user. One of the high lights is that the Children Papers Chair is going to be exhibited in 2018 in "Victoria and Albert Museum of Childhood", London, UK.
STATEMENT OF ART:
Working across form and function comes in between art and design.
Most of my concepts are mirror fragments/stories of life. They send a message that gets synthesized in a double layer object. The functional design and the meaning of art get blurred in the process.
I'm interested in breaking the boundaries that define normal objects and reinterpret them with other ideas so they become multi functional.
