About:

http://www.56thstudio.com/ 56thStudio deals with sassy design, quirky style, and cutting-edge graphical matters. In our studio, form follows story. Our aim is to explore objects that are not only functional but also communicative. Trying our best to combine fashion, furniture, graphic and textile altogether, we enjoy rummaging through a junkyard or a flea market to find weird and wonderful forms or underrated patterns. Stylewise, we are luxe-personified yet kitschy, neo-ethnic, eclectically bold and youthful. 56thStudio proudly embraces pop and mainstream culture and often hijacks existing forms and makes a sarcastic commentary piece out of it.

Swedish designer saran yen panya's 'cheap ass elites' is a chair installation which criticizes what is socially considered 'high' and 'low' in regards to design. 'combining mass-produced household objects and plastic elements the installation sarcastically illustrates and questions what society's indoctrination is really built on. this project is a critique on the gap between the rich and the poor, good taste and bad taste and social hierarchy in modern society. for this project, the chair was a perfect object in aspects of both function and communication. the object itself represents different hierarchies and tastes clearly in its usage and esthetic. Therefore, the designs are a blunt and sarcastic juxtaposition between rich and classical elements such as the louis armchair, ottoman chair, or the styles of william morris, with low-taste elements such as mass-produced plastic appliances, common household items, working class objects etc. the clash of classes is simply shown, yet portrays the idealistic society where the rich and poor merge. the chairs are comprised of 'low' common household plastic objects - storage and laundry baskets - as the seating (back, base and arms), the lower part of the chair a simplified version of those stereotypical upper class chairs made out of wood.'

"Cheap Ass Elites" seeks to understand social division.The collection describes a sense of discomfort in resolving a perceived incongruity between design as stylish craft and working class aesthetic. Therefore, the project explores this disparity by melding ‘high’ symbols of luxe and classicism with ‘low’ found and crafted objects. This constructed juxtaposition is a provoking comment on modes of consumption and is also an interpretation that divides through a combination of design, societal and cultural signification.
