Design Research Technology

Founded by Ifeanyi Oganwu, Expand Design Ltd is a London-based studio engaging in architecture and furniture design by investigating the correlation between history, base materials and opportunities presented by state-of-the-art fabrication techniques. Through our projects, we unearth unidentified typologies that are inspired by the past, grounded in the present, and on a journey to a new aesthetic domain.

BULGY Inverted, Stainless Steel
1580 x 400 x 886 mm / 62.2 x 15.7 x 34.9 in
Edition of 4 + 1AP + 1P

A free standing construct in mirror polished stainless steel which reverses the design principles central to the wall-mounted series.

Here, substructure is exaggerated to form a universe of functional planar surfaces which collide with the draped curve. Multiple reflective surfaces blur the distinction between interior and exterior.
