Originally, furniture was structurally complete, and served to hold books, cups and other objects placed upon it. We can say that this function was one of the most important factors in determining the form of a piece of furniture. This collection presents pieces of ‘weak furniture’ that cannot stand independently until they are made structurally sound through the addition of an object. In addition to increasing stability, the accumulation of objects has other effects as well. It can change the angle of light emitted from a lamp, or expand a bookshelf. Object dependencies is an exploration into new forms created by resetting the once-unquestioned relationship between furniture and objects.
