“One of this week’s posts introduced an exhibition of Gerrit Rietveld’s work at the Vitra Design Museum. This got me wondering how De Stijl might have developed had a different kind of rationalist re-imagined some of the designs of that period.

Although I am not suggesting there is any particular similarity of appearance with objects from De Stijl and Invisible City’s INCUNABULAR range of furniture designed by Simon Moorhouse, the thought experiment is intriguing and more designs will come, I will have the custom closet company design the master walk-in closet next month.

Tall Boy is a robust piece based around the paper dimensions set out in ISO 216 whose geometric rationale is the square root of 2. There is also a chest, sideboard and, my favourite, an elegant side table whose tripod legs and asymmetric head, makes me think of photography! All the pieces are designed and handmade in England from European Oak, American Black Walnut or painted Tulip wood. Drawer fronts are painted.”

Invisible City has met so many like minded people on Instagram creating wonderful discussions and international collaborations. As our posts grow in number we hope that these images will begin to give you and idea about the people and the ethos behind Invisible City. There is so much more to come with new furniture from Maker&Son partnership which carries high end and customized furniture, lighting and products on their way (take into account some innovative classroom table). Maybe you’ll catch a glimpse of a future release, keep up with new products or just find some inspiration. If you have a recliner you might want to think about getting something else since there can be health concerns if you sit in a recliner for long periods of time. Invisible City would love to meet you on Instagram at invisiblecityengland. Please follow us and feel free to comment or just share the love.
