Farewell To Reason

IndustryPlus opens its new showroom with a presentation of a new chapter in the oeuvre of designer and artist KSY (Nathan Yong). In this colourful collection of furniture made from fluid onyx, a designer’s reason is challenged, cold hard stone is being bent, and furniture is viewed beyond our physical realm.

Farewell To Reason comprises 7 limited edition designs drawn in the typology of everyday furniture; barstool, bench, chair, table, shelf, low stool, and table object. These pieces, built from precious onyx that has been bent using state-of-the-art technology, push the boundaries of what furniture can mean to us. KSY (Nathan Yong) wishes that people can see it as furniture beyond our physical realm; a chair to rest your eyes on, a table that talks to you, a barstool that sparks a debate. This is industrial designer Nathan Yong’s departure into art, under his artist alter-ego KSY. Abandoning a designer’s reason that is concerned about business and function, he started designing this collection from his thoughts, emotions, and belief system. This body of work is a departure from all that; all that seemed to make sense are now being re-evaluated. A hard stone that used to be impossible to bend is now being manipulated. A furniture that is supposed to function based on one’s needs is now being challenged. The assumption that stones are dull and not colourful is now being thrown…
