Odd in Shape is a collaboration between Katia Tolstykh and Fedor Katcuba. Together with Charlotte Taylor they started a series of projects called Futurism of the Past, one of them is Villa Åland Islands. In the latter, the three multidisciplinary designers create futuristic renders in a mythical setting.

Katia Tolstykh and Fedor Katcuba are two Russian designers with interests in product design, furniture and spatial design. The aim of their collaboration Odd in Shape is to blur the boundaries between different disciplines such as architecture, product and interior design. This results in a wide range of possibilities. The end product cannot be categorised which in turn appeals to a large number of people with different backgrounds. Charlotte Taylor is an artist in London. She, too, is going to explore these boundaries in her illustrations, which is why a collaboration of the trio is undoubtedly an interesting one. In Futurism of the Past the three designers do research into the aesthetics of futurism from the 1960s. Villa Åland Islands is a project from the series Futurism of the Past. The nature of Åland Islands was the most important source of inspiration for the renders. On the images you can see a futuristic house with enormous glass walls placed in a fairylike environment. The house and surroundings live in a symbiotic relationship while visually contrasting with each other. Some of the furniture placed in the interior is among others the Lemon Sole chair by Kwok Hoi Chan and Lampadaire Lamps by Garrault-Delord Lighting. Through the renders, this futuristic dream world appears to be within reach. Images courtesy of Katia Tolstykh and Fedor Katcuba
