Stefano Santilli is a Senior Lecturer on the Design and Craft programme within the Faculty of Arts. Abundance was selected for inclusion in the EcoDesign exhibition during Habitare, Helsinki Design Week 2011. The jury selected participants from 10 countries were invited to exhibit new work that responded to the theme of Dual Function. Abundance is a furniture proposition constructed from laminated ash, thermo-formed polymer and polished aluminium. Inherently unstable until the basket base has been filled with whatever is to hand, foraging for objects brings the realisation of how many things we own and how many things we forget we own. Combining the functionality of a table, a basket and a mirror, this product encourages users to consider their wealth of consumer goods, both in loading up the basket and caught in the reflection of the mirror. Abundance is one of a series of propositions explore notions of value within a consumer society.
