With the Mallow Lounge Chair, we presented Note Editions and their direct sales platform for consumers for the first time last summer. This spring they added a second exclusive line of products, Void Matters. The furniture collection was created in collaboration with Sancal and explored what defines form – the form itself or the absence that surrounds it. Everyone now has the opportunity to purchase exclusive versions of the two chairs and sofas, a range of stools and a table through Note Editions.
Based on an experiment rather than a short one, the pieces in the Void Matters family explore the relationship between positive and negative space. The result ended with the collection – objects that are also functional furniture. The pieces come in a range of styles and padding options exclusive to Note Editions. Each piece is provided with a fabric label.
“The idea was not to emphasize anything. Especially on the negative space that surrounds physical objects. By recognizing this emptiness, it becomes a design element that is just as important as the objects themselves, ”says Cristiano Pigazzini, co-founder of Note Design Studio. “While positive forms are often associated with strong, active properties, negative space is calm and peaceful and leaves room for interpretation. Our thesis was that the juxtaposition of these two relative spaces would bring something new and thought provoking to a space. “
The core and the rest are opposite forms of the same silhouette in the form of two armchairs. Core is inspired by classic furniture shapes through a combination of a spacious seat and a curved backrest. The rest is the negative outline of the core that has become solid. Vestige’s sculptural tables were inspired by the passage of time and the material traces of the past. A semi-cylindrical shape has been cut out of a rectangular block base, creating two supports for the table top. The final piece in the Void Matters family is Dividuals, a series of organically contoured stools that each fill the space around one another.
