‘Rosewood Cabinet’ Patterned Wall-Mounted Wood Cabinet, Schimmel and Schweikle

$3,600

About the Item

Functional art meets contemporary design with the ‘Rosewood Cabinet’ by design duo Janne Schimmel (Dutch) and Moreno Schweikle (German). Featuring 3D printed elements combined with traditional craftsmanship techniques set inside an aluminium frame, Schimmel and Schweikle investigate further into the meaning of wood-carving and the organic qualities of wood with the ‘Rosewood Cabinet’. Intricately designed panels were created using a two-dimensional hand-drawn wood grain, which was translated into a three-dimensional height map and digitally applied to the boards, giving the effect of a natural structure. Added to the wood-grain pattern is an ornamental motif which gives the effect that the detail has been carved into the wooden panels. The 3D printed planks are coated with wood stain and the top layers have been sanded down to highlight the structure underneath. This piece was exhibited in Schimmel and Schweikle's solo show 'A tree full of splinters' in the Antwerp based Everyday Gallery. Janne Schimmel (Dutch) and Moreno Schweikle (German) met at the renowned Design Academy in Eindhoven, The Netherlands. Rooted in material theory, Schimmel and Schweikle’s new series of works examines wood and its relationship to human progress, taking a close look at how it’s historical, cultural and political narratives have shaped the way we think of a design for centuries. Exploring the space between 3D modelling and craft, they invite us to reconsider the hierarchies between the hand made and then digitally manipulated. Simulated wooden ornaments assume a contiguously relational form to the texture they are mimicking, indistinguishable from the original except for the thin lines that give away it's 3d printed manufacturing. Wooden shelving in the shape of a branch, so perfectly tree-like that it replicates itself; the branches organic bulges repeated as if it were a block print. The pieces make you wonder which form would qualify as ‘more real’, an algorithmic search engine might decide on the 3D printed branches, as the articulation of physical properties that are attributed to wood are so perfectly pronounced in this digitally produced form. Baudrillard predicted that the simulation will become more real than the real, yet in the work of Schimmel and Schweikle they remain equals, assisting each other in function and form.
