This is one of my favourite collections, especially in terms of how varied and creative it is.
It’s a collection of artworks by the artist Ashley.
The collection includes the likes of chairs, stools, tables, chairs with frames and a desk, which is an interesting one as I don’t see it as a common desk or table in the Vanguard line.
Ashley’s work is always about the relationships between people, and the furniture that’s designed for each of them, and so it makes sense that this collection of objects has been designed to work with the way you interact with them.
The chair has a large handle for the armrest, for example, which can be used as a place to sit or stand while the other objects are held in place.
The furniture can be stacked on top of each other, but I think this is where the beauty of the collection lies.
It creates a sort of ‘vertical stack’, with each object just being a small part of a larger collection of items, and each piece is so individual that you never know where you’ll find it.
