Yer fan by Studio Friso
“Yer is a sculptural functional piece, reminiscent of an Opium flower that has been industrialized into a seemingly solid block with cooling ribs.
It was designed as a contemporary addition to an old ambient style of ancient Constantinople. Where social activity took place low-to-the-ground with pillow beds and tapestries.
We’re talking 18th century, a time where elements of (middle-) Eastern mystery in illustrative paintings, rich fabrics and beautiful brass- and copperware made their way to western Europe, introducing a rich ‘Boudoir-style’ that even evolved to certain aspects in the ‘hippy-style’.”
