0.10 SIDEBOARDfurniture study
A SUPREMATIST STATEMENTThese furniture pieces aim to transform the geometrical two-dimensional language of the suprematism artstyle into a new, contemporary three-dimensional form. The triangle becomes the pyramid, the rectangle becomes the rectangular prism. They try to manifest a conclusion for the current trends of geometry and minimalism in the design industry by their radical reduction on shape and colour. On the other hand, through this process the furniture pieces become something independent, far away from the trends they reflect. This opens space for new, different approaches to design to follow in the future.
"Nowadays people are increasingly visually and materially oversaturated. So the topic of "putting to 0" is more relevant than ever before."
Based on geometry, first sketches were made. In case of this sideboard, a few rectangular prisms should only be defined by their outlines, others by their colour-filled surface. It should take up office material. So both "colour-filled" parts of the object should be able to be opened through a cubic shaped opening.
COLOR AND MATERIAL
Different materials and color combinations, which aimed to reflect current trends, were defined.
MODEL MAKINGFor the development and examination of stability and proportions, scaled models were made.
After finishing the design and drafting, the furniture piece was manufactured once. The carcass was made of 16mm mdf panels, which were processed by a 5-axis CNC station. The feet construction was made of welded and lacquered 8mm stainless steel rods. They were screwed to the carcass by their flush sitting mounting plates.Using 8mm stainless steel rods for the feet construction should also provide highest stability dispite of the "outlines" being as thin as possible.
