Andersen’s Macaron stools are made from a variety of cast materials including ceramics, concrete, and puffy polyurethane. They are colourful and spongy, just like the French tuffet-like treats.

Cristian Andersen (1974 Denmark). Known for large, elaborately cast ceramic sculptures, which refer to the design vocabulary of modernistic interior architecture, Cristian Andersen’s work raises questions about urban planning, social justice, and tensions between public and private space. By distributing form across context, materiality, and metaphor, Andersen breaks up the surface structure and negotiates a new environment for abstracted images to reside among, and within.
