From simple beech rods patiently cut, sanded, arranged and lacquered, Pia Maria Raeder creates refined functional sculptures that evoke biomorphic forms. Each work in the collection ‘Sea Anemones’ is handmade. More than 350 hours of work and 27,000 beech rods are necessary to produce this spectacular 'Sea Anemone' mirror that includes seven mirrors with a brass finish. “In my work with beech rods, I love the Challenge of overcoming the contradictions in the material as I play with it. Natural beech rods are straight, but combined at different heights, these rods take on a new form resembling a wave with shadowy reflections. A wooden rod, that is rigid in itself, becomes soft and rounded once sanded. The application of lacquer on the rods arranged in large numbers transforms the wood and underlines its movements.” Emancipated from its limits, the wood is offered a newfound freedom. The breath of nature seems to animate these intriguing pieces of furniture in which function and poetry fuse. Their magic presence is like the echo of nature’s murmur while their organic waves sketch the movement of life. The ‘Sea Anemones’ collection includes side and coffee tables, wall mirrors, a freestanding mirror, an elegant, enveloping armchair and two floor lamps.
