In relation to Daniel Arsham being a multidisciplinary artist doesn’t seem enough – his work has included art, architecture, performance, fashion, and film – but it’s correct. During the lockdown, in the midst of a new job from home, Arsham took time to think about which objects he would like to spend time with himself. The result is an extension of his previous exhibition Objects for Living, which debuted as an immersive environment in collaboration with Friedman Benda at Design Miami / 2019 by modernist architect Norman Jaffe. Residential objects: Collection II is a second furniture group that Arsham designed based on motifs from his daily life. Some of the light-hearted shapes even take on a free, sculptural look that can be created by experimenting with its child’s play, Play-Doh! Within the series you will find an armchair, bench, table, chair, desk lamp, floor lamp and wall decorations that are playful and make you smile.
