Our story Why The people Projects


Artistic research project — "Friends of Wood"
In the project about 20 cabinets where made, here is a selection.

The concept of "Freinds of Wood"

To find material friends to wooden constructions manifested in fixed size of cabinets. Many different materials where investigated, the list is still long over materials and concepts that can be realized.
The idea was not to make comercial cabinets, it's more about trial and error, redo over and over again. The cabinets are not ment to be solitarys, they are a evolution of the previous cabinet, in that sence the all are connceted to each others.
