German designer Christoph Seyferth has created the latest installation for the Design Museum Tank, its Thames-side outdoor gallery. The second in the Living in a Tank series, Domesticated Landscape explores novel ways of providing sleeping and seating space within small domestic interiors. Made from a felt-covered steel framework, the surface undulates with ‘hillocks and hollows’ – moulded multi-purpose curves designed to act as pillows, backrests or even tables. Seyferth’s creation follows Jerszy Seymour’s Bonnie and Clyde, an alternative look at ‘play’ featuring the stripped-out interior of a 1985 Ford Escort. Domesticated Landscape is on show from 22 November until 21 January 2003 at the Design Museum, London SE1.
