‘Inside-Out’ questions the notion of interiority and comfort by intertwining controversial textures and materials linked to exterior and domestic environments in an office interior. An elevated corridor of row sheet-iron filled in with gravels forms the threshold of the inside and outside, which continues to the conference chairs and table – the ‘Un-intimate Comfort’ chair and the ‘Hard/Soft/Cover/Core’ table.

Materials: 4mm row sheet-iron, gravels, foam rubber coated with white linen cloth.
