Forms of intimacy
“Rooms have become too real,” says Alexandros Kotoulas. “Chairs, carpets, lamps, desks; everything has a clearly defined function, there’s not much left to the imagination.” As efficiency and functionality grow, living spaces become less personal and intimate, Alexandros argues. With these three abstract objects, he wants to stimulate the senses and revive a feeling of intimacy. A soft sculpture of four fabrics on the sofa is highly snuggleworthy; two heavy, elongated seed bags on the floor invite feet to dig in; and a smoothly rotating mobile captures the eye and sets of a daydream.
