Molo is a design and production studio based in Vancouver, Canada. Balancing between realms of art, design and architecture, molo’s projects are grounded in space making and range in scale from tea set to museum.
Products stem from Forsythe + MacAllen’s architectural explorations. They are inspired by the concept of smaller, tactile objects having true potency in the experience of a space. By working across a range of sizes, Forsythe + MacAllen discover how furniture can heighten the sense of human scale and experience in architecture, or how furniture and product design can benefit from thinking in the larger context of place and space making.
hands-on making is fundamental to the studio’s design process. Ideas pass from mind to hands to material and back again, ingraining a tactile sense of materiality, construction, space and experience. This process has developed to include factory production, in close collaboration with manufacturers. It is a method that leads to happy accidents and discoveries, embracing design improvisation and original thinking.
Products experience steady, iterative development as the result of Forsythe + MacAllen’s ongoing studies into new and old methods, or through discoveries made from everyday use. These continuous findings inform and refine the designs.
