Mixed Public-Private Boundary collection by Cometabolism Studio
Alexander Zaxarov
May 30, 2022

China-based Cometabolism Studio has created a series of conceptual furniture installations that explore the boundary between public and private spaces.

For this project, Cometabolism Studio has repurposed industrial products that would have otherwise gone to waste, transforming them into a set of furniture objects for both private and public use.

Titled ‘Mixed public-private boundary’, the collection features high-saturation blue and orange tones often used for street signs, warning tapes, and building nets in public spaces. By incorporating these colors, the duo hope hopes to encourage users to ‘notice everyday objects and industrial objects that we ignore in our daily life.’

‘The purpose is to let such objects enter new scenes through unusual design combinations that blur usability. It’s about reconciling the streets with the indoors, the industrial with the daily,’  explains the team.
