G. Independent Furniture Project

May 6, 2010 at 13:52 Leave a comment

Designed by Gonçalo Prudêncio, G. is inspired on what Indie represents within the music industry. By remaining independent it conquers the space for pure reflection, and for defining its own set of operating rules – aesthetically and otherwise. Its reflection, more than formal, is mostly about the social and economical aspects surrounding the design industry. It is aimed at understanding quality and the necessary mechanisms to achieve it, as well as how design products become part of everyone’s lives.

Designing with four guiding lines in mind (Ecolomy of Scale, Mass Customization, Glocal, Ethical) they apply it to the Portuguese context. The result is composed of a tabouret, a dinning table and a system for side tables, all locally produced with “home grown” materials.

Check the GPOD website (and by the way their “book of thoughts” for inspiration!). They need feedback so drop them a line.
