Designed by Maria Tyakina
"Between a rock and a hard place” is a series of wooden pieces that sit between furniture, object, and sculpture. The collection features wooded volumes pressed and pushed into each other. This act of forces and gravity creates self-supporting structures, which are logical, but not rational and propose a function: a side table, shelf, and a rocking bench, all crafted by hand from local cherry wood.
About the designer
Maria Tyakina is a furniture designer whose practice focuses on sensorial perception and the re-imagination of habituated ways of looking at objects.
Her work is often characterized by sculptural gestures and focuses on exploring physicality and how objects mediate our connection to the physical world. Through a personal design language, her work blends form narratives with a character of a material and unique craftsmanship.
