Title: Standard furniture
Author: Rogers, Adam
Abstract: I seek simplicity through my intention to establish a particular beauty, a certain calm achieved both visually and through the intangible feel of my furniture - itself simply a reservoir for the collection and ordering of possessions. The result will reflect the balance between the order inherent in the modest furniture forms that follow function and the emphasized personal quality of certain components of the whole. Through exercising restraint in form, the central element is emphasized, thereby omitting the unimportant to magnify the important. I chase an elusive beauty and an ethereal quality in my furniture. I intend to explore this idea through the marriage of conventional forms - founded on appropriate proportions, material selection, and well considered subtle details - with specific elements whose consideration allows for a softened, human feel to the object. This approach may facilitate a process of making where a form can be standardized, produced, and given its individual voice through the introduction of the specifically considered components with the goal of achieving various, yet consistently unique furniture.
