Diving Into Ara Thorose’s Abstractive Cylinders World


Introduction

I make furniture out of bending cylinders. In doing so, I meet with the standardness of functionality through forms that by their nature deviate from standard.

I use the width of my thigh as the basis for the cylinders to warm the abstraction of the work

Studies

I did my undergrad at the University of California Irvine in Sociology with a focus on gender and sexuality, and then grad school in 3D Design at Cranbrook.

Working Process

I play with cylindrical materials, which have their own strengths and limits. My process is essentially exploring within that space. 


Material

I use industrial rubber tubing, steel, foam, and wool.

Inspiration

Fluidity, which is essentially queer ingenuity. 

What are you working on lately?

I’m making a sofa, the design of which utilizes the algorithmic aspect of my chair forms.
