The main idea of Reinis Ducmanis’ Rorschach was to create furniture that is abstract in both function and form. The designer has been working on an object with no apparent purpose that does not reveal its role, thus encouraging every user to look for it.
The concept and visual image of this furniture is inspired by the visual psychological tests in Rorschach – abstract inkblot prints that are used to analyze the psychological state, characteristics and emotions of people. Everyone sees something different in these inkblot prints, and that’s exactly what Reinis Ducmanis wanted to achieve with these objects.
The designer has created a range of furniture that is abstract enough for people to search for uses that are especially suitable for them. For example, to store things that are used more often than other items every day but have no permanent place in the room: the book you are reading, a magazine or newspaper or your mobile phone, your wallet or a coffee cup. It can also be used as a coffee table, stand for an audio system or television, bedside table or bench.
