The international design collective Outofstock, Gabriel Tan and Wendy Chua from Singapore, Gustavo Maggio from Argentina and Sebastián Alberdi from Spain, originally met in Stockholm during the Electrolux Design Lab in 2005. After a renunion in 2006 they decided to work together. Today Outofstock is based in Singapore, Barcelona and Buenes Aires.
“Dunes is a set of modular, stackable screens inspired by the undulating sand dunes of the desert. We used thick elastic chords to weave surfaces within an inverse-triangulated steel frame. The result is a screen with rich colour gradients that act as a low-opacity colour filter, defining a semi-private space. They can be combined to form a continuous linear partition or used separately as spatial markers.”
“Saturn is a pendant lamp made of welded pentagonal shapes in aluminum alloy. Its clean geometric form contrasts with an undulating vortex of elastic threads under the lamp shade – a clash of order and disorder. The stitch-detail along the edges of the lamp lends a touch of hand-craftedness to the final product.”
