ETERNAL RELATIONSHIP (Amsterdam, 2002)
REVERSIBLE ARCHITECTURE. Wooden coffins, pillows, shelf – 200 x 60 x 60 cm. Collection Mercedes Vilardell. Programme: furniture for eternity.
Eternal Relationship is a modular piece of furniture which can be transformed from a sofa for two into two coffins, from sitting to lying, from life to death, as Rocío de la Villa described it. It serves as a humorous commentary on the survival of romantic idealizations and the difficulties we have maintaining stable relationships in this day and age.
