Bamboo Credenza (Furniture) by Jeffrey Klug
2012 - 2013, Silver A' Furniture and Homeware Design Award Winner
Inspiration
How to organize all that constantly and unpredictably changing technology that accumulates around modern Flatscreen TVs, creating a piece of furniture that is at once about modern life, using tactile and rich and sustainable materials, while avoiding overtly fashionable references to the sleek plastic boxes that will surround it.
Creativity
Making the Credenza's Gestalt memorable through both material (Bamboo vs Polished Stainless Steel steel) and formal (Volume vs linear) contrast the credenza is able to absorb the typical haphazard collection of disparate electronic components (remotes, DVD players, cable boxes, game stations and components) surrounding home entertainment while remaining domestic and not overtly 'electronic'.
Design Challenges
This credenza solves the problem of how to house the constantly changing and updating technological entertainment equipment (the television and all of its constantly evolving peripherals) while remaining both modern and domestic.
Production Technology
The Credenza is made by conventional wood working and welding tools. supporting local trades and artisans. Made of laminated bamboo plywood, an easily replenishable material, the details take the opportunity to amplify the intrinsic beauty of the laminations. The subtlety and uniqueness of each material's texture is enhanced by the traces each craft; the hand work in the polished stainless steel angle and the relief in the bamboo.
