Mind the Gap is the entrance furniture collection from Norwegian designer¬†Ida Noemi. Comprised of two pieces – a chair and a console – the line¬†responds to different actions in the entrance. The series of boxes resemble cityscapes and provide storage for your essentials as you pass through the area. ‘The entrance is the first room you enter in a home, and the last room you leave. It bridges the gap between the private world and the outside world. Thinking of the entrance this way, it can be defined as a transition portal between the two worlds. You never spend time there, yet you always pass by – a transitional moment of extreme stress or ultimate relief,’ – says the designer. Thus, the pieces create a ‘charge/relief station,’ helping you to get armed for your day and disarmed when you are back home and ready to relax.
