Despite the prevalence of minimal aesthetics in design and architecture today, we as designers shouldn’t shy away from incorporating elements of ornamentation in our work.

Ceci n’est pas Andrew is a collection of artifacts for the home or studio that intends to reintroduce ornamentation in design in a contemporary context. These artifacts were produced through a series of material explorations using appropriated objects. The overwhelming nature of this space is meant to emphasize a consistent visual language that can exist and be interpreted in any form.

This collection aims to open up discussions about ownership, appropriation, personalization and the boundary between art and design.
