Acne Furniture Collection by Carl Malmsten

Officially launched a few days ago in Paris, the Acne Furniture Collection is featuring some strange shapes. Playing on what has come to be known as Malmsten’s typically Swedish design aesthetic, Acne founder Jonny Johansson explains that he decided “to objectify its form from a perspective play, stretching, squashing and pulling the simplistic shape.”

It’s a very original and clever idea. The furniture pieces seem to have a crooked shape, and this is exactly what makes them fun and special. It’s not logic when you think about it. Why would anyone want to make their furniture look broken and crooked on purpose… But modern and contemporary designs try to exploit exactly ideas like this one. Anything out of the ordinary or simply different is a source of inspiration.

So if your home needs a modern touch and a little fun décor, take a look at this collection.  It includes a sofa and a chair. It could be an interesting idea to make the whole room seem crooked, but unfortunately it’s going to be very difficult to find furniture pieces that share the same style like these ones. You could always modify them, but you would have to be very sure that you know what you’re doing because you might ruin everything. So you better be happy with just these two pieces.
