Standard Primitives, ’the new collection of modular furniture-objects by studio Dave Keune, consists of different bright and pure, interchangeable elements. Standard Primitives doesn’t prescribe how things ‘should be’ but allows for a plural and personal ‘could be’. Please check our illustrated paper for more visuals and explanation.

The elements function as objects in themselves, as they utilize the standardized quality of appropriation. As aesthetic, pure and primitive forms, this unique collection thus holds a functional expression and personalization as (semi) finished multi-purpose vehicle.

The large standing lamp consists of 3 cones that are made of laminated paper that gives the product a soft appearance and enables the large volumes to be of low cost.

The act ‘to design’ demands a creative producer and a creative consumer. Studio Dave Keune democratizes the aesthetic functioning of design by challenging the consumer ’s creativity and perspective on his environment. This collection enables the user to take on the role of designer and to design his personal environment!

The table shows that the combination of objects can create a new dynamic object. The metal balls are wheels that make the table pivot around the pyramid so the surface can be available to anyone in its environment.

By use of Echopanel the modules used in the sideboard are light and structural in use. In this way it can be build and filled in any way you like.
