hedi slimane

[…] I never wanted to whisper anything to any viewer. As for the furniture design, the F System was a reduced and a raw approach to function, and to obsolete or forgotten functions (mostly from 18th-century french ’social furniture’).
I designed using Word, as if I was na illustrator (for instance: _-_). I used signs to create a system of propotions and functions. It was not at all about accommodating and was anything but ergonomic. I guess it is always a sort of metaphor. Is design really about pleasing or conforting anyone? In men’s fashion, we had 20 years of shapeless suits, because of the need for ’confort’. I think it can be interesting to experiment with restriction and constraints. And you might get used to it.
