Bliss by Mother
Floating furniture for the future
Bliss is a provocative, self-conscious meditation on the role of consumerism and class politics in the global climate crisis. Bliss poses as a prototype for an upcoming, imaginary line of floating furniture, for individuals seeking an appealing contingency plan for rising sea levels.
Through this satirical lens, the art piece aims to highlight the imbalance between people with means and those without, during times of catastrophe.
When waters reach the “critical” mark on Bliss’s sea level indicator, the furniture transitions seamlessly from a buoyant sofa to a SOLAS-certified safety raft ready to whisk you away on relaxing adventures.
Bliss is fully equipped with state-of-the-art features. Designed by the world’s top survivalist architects, Bliss comes with a paddle attachment (don’t let the future steer you!), rocket flare, and emergency strobe, should the situation ever get really bad/suuuper boring.
