NYC Design Week 2015 saw the Rhode Island School of Design alumni Farrah Sit and Anna Lynett Moss from Chiyome, both New York-based product designers, collaborate on a beautifully light and elegant furniture collection.
Rooted in an analysis of planar relationships and with a nod to design elements borrowed from fashion, the collection is a study of weightlessness and balancing opposites — line vs volume, bright vs muted, transparent vs opaque.
Both designers became friends in the NY design scene through a mutual deep admiration for each others' work and share a focus on thoughtful, considered and sustainable design with community engagement – this collaboration was an opportunity to explore such design philosophy on a larger scale.
The collection was exhibited during NYCxDesign2015 at Colony, a furniture showroom that celebrates and showcases the community of independent designers in New York City.
