Three Dimensional Design

The Compromisation Set are two back to back chairs that visually and interactively demonstrate the importance of compromise in resolving conflicts, that are inspired by the time I spent in Palestine last year.

In Summer 2018 I spent two months in Palestine volunteering with SkatePal. Whilst in Palestine I personally underestimated the destruction that conflict had brought to the area. Witnessing tear gas being thrown at young children who I was teaching, and meeting numerous people who had lost loved ones was naively not what I expected. As I left I could not help think these people need our help. This led me thinking. How could my own practice and skills as a furniture designer be used to benefit people living in conflict?

I want my work to spread awareness on conflict and for it to be discussed more often/openly. Spreading awareness is a catalyst in helping those in need.
