ADDRESS Interview with Celina Dalrymple of FFABB Home.
Define your craft in 3 sentences or less. Furniture first. Tech enabled. ffabb is founded on years of experience and it’s craftsmanship driven by a passion to build upholstered furniture for life. That is Loved in.
Describe your creative process. We start with a drawing – always – and then
digitize to confirm scale & proportion. All new designs are run through as a prototype first, and that is where we play/ test/ tweak and morph it into its perfect self.
Where do you find inspiration when experiencing a creative block? Friday afternoon Soul Train dancing at the ffabb lab obviously!
What advice would you give to young designers / makers / artists / creatives aspiring to make it in their field? Stay in your own lane. Keep on the sunny side. You will know your path by the fun of it, the rest will sort out as it is meant to.
What’s your dream project? The big dream is to have ffabb up and running, and to have our furniture in homes all over the globe. Creating furniture that lasts and is loved in for years gets me truly excited.
What design trends are you excited about? The blend of hand work and technology. Great Innovation can come from experimenting with new toys.
