In Royal Chambers, Wang & Söderström present an assembly of five works that investigate our relationship to the term home across the digital and environmental developments of our time. Together they describe an entanglement of shifting power structures and perspectives in a rapidly changing ‘phygital’ world. The book offers insights into the processes behind the works, as well as essays from five contributing writers that unfold the idea of home as a multifaceted eco system. It also includes a short biography of Wang & Söderström, photos of their studio and an index of selected works from 2016–2022.
In a hybrid practice that spans the physical and the digital, Wang & Söderström reflect upon how the world is changing through technology. Between the visceral present, clear as mud, and the future – often clearer than we give it credit for – Royal Chambers posits an expanded idea of home, of care and connection from micro to macro, to shine light on a more integrated and nuanced notion of life and living.
Wang & Söderström are a Swedish design and artistic duo consisting of Anny Wang and Tim Söderström. They currently live and work in Copenhagen, Denmark.
