Coalesce Design Studio is a Karachi-based, multi-disciplined, multi-faceted team that ventures beyond innovation, into a place where pushing boundaries is standard. By reviving dying crafts in Pakistan, it aims to push past traditions in order to deliver cutting-edge designs.

Coalesce Design Studio’s team of accomplished professionals is aptly defined as an “amalgamation”, and consists of architects, planners, brand strategists, and graphic designers. Using a myriad of honed skills, they produce work that aspires to change the perception of design.

The installation will showcase different rotating Lattoo Stools. The concept behind the designs is to create a contrast between the solid shapes and the skeletal framework, exploring structure and the point of convergence between different materials and forms. The stools consist of intricate, tessellated steel structures that support rotating and playful wooden seats. Movement plays an integral role both in the form and function of the stools, and is merged with the gesture of layering and the combination of materials.
