Wooden Aquarelle Objects

An industrially fabricable product incorporates handcraft techniques in its production.

Wooden Aquarelle is the result of a material study to colour wood. The colouring process runs chaotically and leaves random, dynamic patterns. Only the colour palette used for the initial impulse is controllable.
Further processing of the pigmented wood is optional. The method creates decorated wooden sheets which can be used in various ways such as a base material for furniture or wall panels.

Wooden Aquarell was applied to three furnishings.
The side tables are essentially diagonally split cubes. Different heights make them nestable. They can be combined in various arrangements.
The screen is made out of single boards. A U-shape is inserted on the top and bottom of the wood, fixed on one side but freely movable on the other.
A square dining table is constructed nearly cut-free. The coloured wood is curved down on the edges to get a continuous decor. The table has removable legs to allow it to ship flat.
