The seven designers participating to the first issue of Obliquite, explore the way objects come to life, their significations, their narratives. They dissect our society of spectacle, and transgress it. They play with memory, myths, fetishes, the hidden mechanisms and historiography of objects. They are not focusing on the function of objects. Instead, they explore the narratives and various ways in which our lives are conditioned by design.
