Volcaniques: Adaptive furniture system
The ‘VOLCANIQUES’ system is a uniquely tailor made furniture series. Each piece is handmade and cast in resin polyester.
‘VOLCANIQUES’ is pure and simple, playing with only two ingredients: cone shaped supports and a plate, all cast in resin 2.5 cm thick. The casting process allows for the advantages of serial repetition as well as offering unique combinations of outline and colour choice for each piece. The resulting relief is self-supporting; it can be stacked without any additional features. The height of the craters constitutes the function of the object, generating a functional landscape - from low 'lounge' tables, to dining tables. Multi coloured and mixed opacities are possible, contributing to the versatility of the range.
‘VOLCANIQUES’ was first edited for the Van Dijk Fashion Store, Rotterdam, as part of the interior design executed by OOZE. Other editions were produced for VIVID-vormgeving gallery, Rotterdam, galleries in Spain, the London practice Adjaye Associates for Abbey National Bank and the “Belle et Fou” Theatre in Berlin.
