Niall Ewen

Scrofa

Niall Ewen’s work explores alternative possibilities of human evolution through the medium of furniture. Each piece has been designed as an evolutionary patch to grant the user an additional evolutionary trait or advantage. The culminating form unique to each edition comes as a result of the interaction between skeletal components and the exterior dermal layer combined to instil a sense of both psychological and physiological safety. The furniture takes strong inspiration from the natural world creating a contemporary alternative to skin and bone.
