If you study the history of furniture, there is a reading of a piece that talks about the materiality and its consequence in culture. For example, the feather weight furniture of Versailles is mostly a result of royal courts moving from palace to palace....the furniture designer was looking out for the people who had to move the court. Recently, I have seen furniture that is very delicate in material but made in an almost hyper-craft mode. Is this the result of a new consciousness? A desire to respect the material,use less of it and revel in new technologies for the construction of the work.......This is a very respectful stool/hat rack by
