Abstraction Furniture as Interactive Art by Roxanne Flick
View Slideshow

Roxanne Flick’s Abstraction furniture series tackles several issues found in art by way of a mirror, couch table, and side table. Shapes replacing the human body, the importance of function, and where the borders of design live are her focuses. Flick’s answer is to create functional art that’s also an interactive experience, allowing users to take part in the design process itself. Each of the three pieces in Abstraction can be rotated to create a number of compositions, creating a connection between the art and the user while also opening the door to the potentials of good design.

The Pittsburgh-based graphic designer and writer has had a deep love of art and design for as long as she can remember, and enjoys sharing her finds with others. When undistracted by great art and design, she can be found making a mess in the kitchen, consuming as much information as possible, or on the couch with her three pets.
