molo

molo introduces cloud lighting

molo, based in Vancouver, Canada, is a design and production studio dedicated to an exploration of space making in combination with innovative experiments in manufacturing, materials and structure. The work of the molo studio balances between the realms of art, architecture and design for serial production.
molo creates unique designs in a variety of scales, from tea set to museum, for clients around the world. The design of molo products grows from Stephanie Forsythe + Todd MacAllen’s architectural explorations. They are inspired by the idea that smaller tactile objects and elements have a real potency in the physical experience of a space. Forsythe + MacAllen work back and forth between the intimate scale of furniture and small utilitarian objects, to the larger scale of buildings and landscapes. Working at a furniture scale
heightens the sense of human scale and physical experience in architecture. Conversely, furniture and product design benefits from the perspective of thinking in the larger context of place and space making.
Hands-on making has always been fundamental to Forsythe + MacAllen’s design process, and is an integral part of their ongoing exploration. Ideas pass from mind to hands to material and back again; ingraining a tactile sense of materiality, construction, space and experience. (more…)
