NECESSITY UNDERPINS THE WORK OF LUCAS MORTEN, WHO STARTED MAKING HIS OWN FURNITURE AFTER MOVING BACK TO SWEDEN FROM NEW YORK AND BEING UNABLE TO PROCURE PIECES THAT SUITED HIS REFINED AESTHETIC. DESCRIBING HIMSELF AS OCCUPYING THE “BORDERLAND” BETWEEN ART AND DESIGN, THE DESIGNER WANTS TO MAKE OBJECTS THAT ENABLE PEOPLE TO “INTERACT WITH ART IN MORE THAN A VISUAL WAY, ALSO PHYSICALLY AND MENTALLY”. THE UDD SOFA TABLE IN ANODISED ALUMINIUIM REFERENCES BRUTALISM BUT ALSO INVITES QUESTIONING.
