Tactile Monoliths is a minimal collection of objects created by Copenhagen-based designer Stine Mikkelsen. The designer is fascinated by objects that the user can keep on having a dialogue with; objects that make people wonder. If the meaning of an object is not clear, people feel invited to explore and use their imaginations. By using methods known from textile design, Mikkelsen created a collection of objects based on unexpected material manipulations. By challenging the way people normally perceive furniture design, she wanted to capture the users attention. The collection consists of objects with a clear reference to a function and other objects, which are more sculptural. Through this, she wanted to challenge the boundaries for how people understand textile, and product design today.
