Guido Ooms – Eindhoven, Netherlands – LO-RES chair

Lo-Res Chair by Guido Ooms

The digital world often forces tradeoffs between two opposing preferences: speed and quality. When working with images, speed often translates to lower resolution, compressing elements to simplified shapes. During this process, it is the computer, compelled by necessity, that makes the decisions about what is taken out and what is left. If we apply this bargain to existing products, we see that certain aspects of the product come to the front, while others recede.
