ARCHETYPING DAYBED

Archetyping Daybed refers to the classical daybed, constructed out of archetypal forms. Yet its carved surface is atypical in appearance. The colour of the textile cushion and the aubergine-pigmented chipwood induce a dialogue. The low furniture piece embodies a compelling tension between hardness and softness, between contemporary and traditional crafts.

 

Archetyping Daybed underlines a contrast: The machine made chipwood is transformed into a structured, touchable furniture. The daybed provokes a fusion between various tactile materials and visualizes ancient and modern culture. The carved surface of the daybed reinforces the sculptural character of the object.

 

With a focus on materiality and sensibility the studio strives for sensory relevance and cultural value in detail and in bigger scale. Studio Destroyers/Builders develops objects and interior projects with a conscious material use and aims to bring daily objects closer to our senses.

CROSS VAULT

“A view on human touch into industrial form language.”

 

Cross Vault examines the architectural element through a sculptural piece of furniture. Both contemporary and classical fragments are the bases of the visual language of the Cross Vault. Fascinated by old building techniques, the classical cross vault - which is usually made out of layered bricks - has been reinterpreted through another materiality. This Cross Vault is a clear exploration in shape, translated into an open furniture piece; a low seating element. The transition of the crossed structure, built from bended aluminium, still refers to the building technique but the scale opens new functions. The finish of the surface, sanded by hand, leaves a cloudy texture that shows the human touch of the architectural shape. These traces that are still visible in the object, explain the method of Destroyers/Builders. The aluminium volume ‘Cross Vault’ reveals the fusion between sculptural and industrial.
