Drawers To Our Past

With a great interest in the concept of design for debate, I have studied the topic of Nostalgia and the power that objects have to take us to specific times and places, considering that this emotion can be interpreted by different people in many different ways. ‘Ivonne’ is a piece of design for debate taking the form of a contemporary piece of furniture that explores nostalgia and questions the ability that objects have to provoke intense emotional feelings of happiness and sorrow. Providing a series of pseudo tabernacles, this piece introduces the viewer to a series of carefully curated objects that can bring them back in time to nostalgic events.
