The project examines and reimagines objects by having each studio design an object consisting of three distinct parts and then mixing the parts up into unpredictable combinations.
The project started in March 2015 at Design March in Reykjavik where each studio designed a floor lamp. The end-results; 27 different lamp compilations were totally unpredictable, ranging from strange to exhilarating. Forms and material combinations emerged that would not have otherwise come to life. For Helsinki Design week the group is tackling another subject – the cabinet.
1+1+1 is a rare kind of collaboration with no compromises as each studio designs their objects according to their own philosophy. Combining the different parts into new combinations is an almost brutally concrete form of cooperation.
