New Domestic Quotidian

Funded by: Research England

Team: Paul Chamberlain

The traditional structures of our every-day life and the spaces we inhabit become ever more  challenged. Increased life expectancy, a global pandemic and technology pervading every aspect of our lives has blurred the boundaries of domesticity and work life, while spaces within the home become less delineated.

Through this collection of work Paul challenges traditional furniture typologies and morphs archetypal forms to create hybrid ambiguous artefacts that reflect the new domestic quotidian. The work is part of a broader Lab4Living research enquiry funded through Research England’s Expanding Excellence in England Programme that explores the role of Design in the re-conceptualisation of the 100-year life. 

This collection of work was exhibited at Venice Biennial Architecture exhibition “Time Space Existence” during 22 May – 21 November 2021.

‘Conversation piece’ aims to physically reconnect people and shift focus away from technology.
