    What was your inspiration?
    The "No ornamentation" series comments on the systematic overuse of ornamentation in contemporary furniture. The resurgence of decorative elements has been a welcome change from the unflinching minimalism of the early 2000's but it has also given birth to an array of products that have used such ornamental surface treatments merely to cover up their mediocrity. One & Co applauds the furniture for its simplicity yet chooses to have its cheeky manifesto applied to it. Thus the typographic application results in ornamentation in its own right.


    Why is it important for you to give back?
    It's obvious that the world we live in is not a balanced one. How can we - the lucky ones - enjoy our prosperity when it seems unattainable to others? Giving is one of many avenues to address that biggest of problems. Architecture for Humanity has proven that good design can directly benefit those in immediate need - due to displacement, poverty or catastrophe.

    Design Benefits:
    A percentage of the sale of the No Ornamentation line goes to Architecture for Humanity, a non-profit organization set up to promote architecture and design to seek solutions to global social and humanitarian crises.
