Chronos

The time we dedicate to any object – its use, its contemplation – could be considered the measure of its effectiveness. The true meaning of its existence. However, time is still seen as a human construct. Early Greek philosophers considered Chronos (meaning “time” in Greek) as an illusion. The project by Object of Common Interest requires time to activate a perception that is fully here and now. The material interacts with the slightest variations of light and colors, and with the soft movements of the draping. Aristotle treated time as a measure of motion. Motions of things, motions of human beings.

An abstract white landscape within the middle 3 floor lamps made in a special acrylic resin at the new Objects of Common Interest studio in Piraeus, a distinctive technique as an homage to color – all of them unique pieces. The set design is completed with a limited edition in a polymorph cast aluminum chair and other functional and non-functional objects. 

All the elements are made to interact with the visitors, especially the light elements. The perception of alteration – of colors, light and material nature of the surface itself – is emphasized by finishes both glossy and matt.

The project started in 2019 to be shown during the Milan Design Week 2020. Then arrived the pandemic and a long moment of meditation and processing. So, in 2022 we decided to retake the project and reshape it considering the recent time passed and what happened to us during the past 24 months. Here comes in the picture Chronos and Design Miami/ as perfect scenario.
