Camille Kachani’s Overgrown Household Furniture Suggests Tenacity of Natural Process

On the progressive political wing of home furnishings, there’s Camille Kachani’s collection of anarchic furniture, a leafy manifesto of the silent world of drawers, chairs and shelving, and the natural world that precedes it.

Absolutely uber-cool, the Overgrown Household Furniture collection is a ebullient statement of the patience of nature, and its slow, relentless tenacity. Some pieces are nearly interactive, and may be embellished upon by human agency. Others exist only as statements; they have evolved or devolved away from the imposition of order.

The Lebanese artist’s creative designs emphasize the beauty of nature’s transformative processes, and finds in them a sense of peace. Each of the pieces takes what used to be an everyday object and transforms it into a naturalized item that seems to be caught, mid-growth, in natural process.

Throughout, the tools of the human world are cast into question: represented by a thought-provoking amalgam of technological potential, mundane necessity and incipient violence, that world is rendered in stark contrast to the simple continuation of the wild.
