A furniture object never was just a chair, a table or a desk. And a lamp never just a lamp. Rather furniture and lighting have always been a reflection of the social, cultural, economic, technical and political context in which they arose. At least in the truly interesting, important, meaningful cases. Everything else is just cheap show and commerce. With the smow blog we aim to look beyond the superficial, the buzzwords and fashions and explore the true soul of design as expressed through its practitioners and their work. Historic, contemporary and always with an eye on the future.
