We standardized the sizes of the pieces of wood into building blocks of about 50 x 20 x 2,5 cm. Doing this, we were able to self produce all furniture pieces in our own workshop, from carpentry to varnishing…
We enjoyed messing up our studio by dipping pieces of jelutong timber and southern yellow pine in colourful baths. We covered every layer with a new one, at a 45° degree angle. Federica Sala – PS Design Consultants and curator of the Herringbones exhibition at 5VIE District says:”What impresses me about Herringbones is the concept of perpetual pattern, recurring pattern, pattern of patterns, that is what covers the surrounding world, no matter if in a planned or casual way, by transforming it in another world, combining any possible shape or pattern. It is like a mathematical analysis on the interaction variables between lines and curves.”
This type of patterning is most commonly applied to fabrics. Their effect on wood creates a weaving structure on interior objects.
We manually assembled the pieces of wood into diverse dynamic arrangements such as chairs and paravents.
