Shape Takes on New Meaning with Building Blocks
Los Angeles-based furniture, interior, and accessory designer Jialun Xiong has created Building Blocks, a set of black and white seating designed around honesty of materials and purity of form. The minimalism of the shapes allows both designs to shine from every angle, with each piece leaning on the other to form a figurative whole. Building Blocks’ Side Chair is an illusion that plays with positive and negative shapes through its design. The side chair’s companion pulls double duty as a Side Table / Stool, depending on your space’s needs. Its round shape and minimal form takes the design down to only the necessities. Both pieces are available in both black and white. The white version is made from leather and a metal base, add Ash wood and suede for the black version and you have a pair that cuts at all angles.
