Modern furniture vs Contemporary furniture. What’s the difference?
We hear this question very often. Case make both Modern furniture and Contemporary furniture. That is because we have furniture designed in the 1950s as well as furniture designed this year. Modern furniture refers to a period in time, the modernist movement, or modernism. Modernism is a philosophical movement that, along with cultural trends and changes, arose from wide-scale and far-reaching transformations in Western society during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. This style does not change, it reflects the design of that movement. Contemporary furniture is a design of recent time, reflecting the style and design of the present day.
Contemporary by definition means “existing, occurring, or living at the same time; belonging to the same time.” Contemporary furniture often borrows styles from other eras, however it is designed in the present day. Case design furniture reflecting some of the designs from the modern period, with simple lines, often minimal.
“The configuration and the scale of art cannot be transposed into furniture and architecture. The intent of art is different from that of the latter, which must be functional. If a chair or a building is not functional, if it appears to be only art, it is ridiculous. The art of a chair is not its resemblance to art, but is partly its reasonableness, usefulness and scale as a chair.”
