Takuto Ohta Builds Primitive Furniture Set By Stacking Blocks Intuitively

Japanese designer Takuto Ohta unveils ‘innocent’, a peculiar furniture set made out of blocks with 45-degree cuts that can be stacked at various angles. The resulting compositions articulate, as Takuto Ohta, describes it, a ‘primitive’ tool bringing out the sensibility and imagination of stacking things according to intuition. Face the block and don’t pay too much attention to the purpose or meaning you want to give it. I don’t think about what I’m making. I simply allow the laws of physics to take over,’ explains the designer.

HIGHLIGHTING THE COMPLEXITY OF SIMPLE ‘BUILDING BLOCKS’

Takuto Ohta used colored masking tape to bind the 45-degree blocks together — creating a sober contrast with the light wooden texture. these masked ‘lumps’ of wood can then be combined to build a series of rich configurations and furniture pieces. from stools to benches and tabletops, the multi-colored blocks seem to transition from one ‘purpose’ to another quite effortlessly.

The height and length of each block set can vary greatly.

The creativity of building blocks, which can transform into rockets and buildings, shows the surprising complexity of letting things flow naturally.

Architect Takuto Ohta, born in France in 1993, is behind these intriguing sculptures. A graduate of Tokyo University of the Arts, he takes a particular interest in the relationships between humans and their creations.

‘We create in an inorganic way. We use shapes, masses that are supposed to remain immobile. Fixed, bound by their own body, they appear almost powerless’

the artist declares.

Organic objects that seem strangely alive, rubbish things move and evolve without the assistance of any form of motor. These wooden ‘things’ are sensitive to their environment, whether animate or inanimate, which dictates their movement.
