From: C, a New York-based design studio led by Caroline Chao, presents BLOC, the designer’s inaugural furniture collection. BLOC Collection won a 2023 NYCxDESIGN Award jointly presented by Interior Design Magazine and NYCxDESIGN. The collection was also showcased in a curated exhibit called “PLAYSCAPE” during Milan Design Week.
BLOC is a five-piece collection consisting of the Cube Chair, Wedge Chair, Tri Stool, and Cylinder Lounge & Ottoman. The collection draws inspiration from familiar geometric shapes often associated with children’s play blocks, such as a cube, wedge, triangle, and cylinder. These shapes and geometries are highlighted by their material contrast - transparency versus solidity, softness versus hardness, and textured and imperfect versus smooth and fine. Unconventional material additions such as transparent lucite blocks transform familiar shapes associated with childhood and play into elevated sculptural objects and provide functionality and comfort from otherwise abstract geometric forms.
