Furnisculpture - 001

I studied interior architecture in the '80s and got hooked to either artists committing themselves to the creation of spaces or volumes that look like or possess atributes of furniture, or furniture designers entering the world of sculpture. I collected a lot of clippings throughout the years. Here a first attempt at providing a visual encyclopedia of furnisculptures and sculptirniture.
