The Boring Collection sprung from a deep dissatisfaction with the appearance of contemporary project furniture. Their looks dictated by strict safety regulations, affordable office furniture is often a detonating eye sore in otherwise well-designed interiors. Sure, we considered designing more aesthetically pleasing furniture. But it would likely become unaffordable, or lead us to other impossible compromises. Instead of shifting the parameters, we accepted them and forged a solution within: to shift attention away from the furniture, onto other, more worthy things like in this project.

BORING COLLECTION
