Post 1/5: Before thinking about forms and shapes we started thinking about the story behind the piece. We started with something simple but which, for us, has a very strong meaning. We both listen to a lot of music, and there is a song called Pink Moon by Nick Drake, which we both really like. We had heard it on a number of occasions, but never researched its meaning. When we did, we found that a Pink Moon indicates a time of new growth. We saw it as a sign. Its meaning is beautiful for these times of change. After a crisis there will be a re-birth.
Post 2/5: Pink Moon tends to appear in the night sky with a pinkish hue. The ‘pink’ in its name comes from flowers in the United States that blossom in spring. Since the pink moon is named after the blooming flowers of moss pink, it represents focusing on new and exciting things that could bloom up in your life during this season. It pushes us to take an active role — focusing on that call to action and how that affects your current life circumstances
Post 3/5: Spiritually, the Pink Moon always signified rebirth and renewal as Spring begins to take shape in April. The Pink Moon is a sign that life goes through cycles: bright flowers may die, but they always come back again each year.
Post 4/5: Our design proposal has this concept as the real protagonist of a storytelling. We wanted to create a landscape, to give an idea of something very natural. The perimeter of the table heavily draws the skyline of the mountains. The headrest of the chair, which is dominant in relation to the structure of the seat, becomes a rising moon, recalling a strong need for rebirth.
Post 5/5: The legs of the table, designed through inlay technique, have a strong reference to the decorative techniques of Native Americans who used geometric decorations (such as triangles and chevrons) as protection symbols. Painting, but especially body painting, was for one of these tribes (the Kayapo — a Brazilian ethnic tribe) a sign of integration and aggregation. A symbol of union and collectivity that today more than ever we need to embrace.
