Interview with Claudio Sibille at Tuesday 15th of April 2014

FS: What is the main principle, idea and inspiration behind your design?
CS: Well, this particular work started in Marken, Holland. Marken is a beautiful small fishermen´s town. While sitting on the grass facing the coast I saw all the ships (actually boats and big boats), and the shape of the bow of a particular boat led me to start making some random sketches of what now resembles the lateral view of the legs of the table, leaning forward, just like the fore of a ship. It remained just a drawing. Some years later, back in Uruguay, found that same notebook at the same period of time I was working on a home desk design for my personal use. The idea was to make a sample in Uruguay and use it for myself. The shape stuck in my head and served as the leit motif of the whole project.

FS: What has been your main focus in designing this work? Especially what did you want to achieve?
CS: I wanted to make a project where the main purpose is creating everlasting and atemporal beauty. Something that would never be considered old nor modern.

FS: What are your future plans for this award winning design?
CS: Keep adding awards until I get better and better and making sure I always live up for the expectations.

FS: How long did it take you to design this particular concept?
CS: Very short time. It was all done within less than a month. April 2013.

FS: Why did you design this particular concept? Was this design commissioned or did you decide to pursuit an inspiration?
CS: No, just for my own personal use. Need a desk, and I wanted to design one for myself rather than buy one.

FS: Is your design being produced or used by another company, or do you plan to sell or lease the production rights or do you intent to produce your work yourself?
CS: Yes, it is manufactured by M3, a company which I co-Own It´s a company based in Hong Kong that manufactures high end multifunctional furniture and sofa beds.

FS: What made you design this particular type of work?
CS: The need for a desk at my house

FS: Where there any other designs and/or designers that helped the influence the design of your work?
CS: No, not really

FS: How did you come up with the name for this design? What does it mean?
CS: Well, it all started at Marken, a little fishermen´s town in the Netherlands.

FS: Which design tools did you use when you were working on this project?
CS: Penciol, paper, and Autocad.

FS: What is the role of technology in this particular design?
CS: Since the idea was to make a piece of furniture that could be manufactured by any local carpenter in Uruguay, I tried to make it artesanal but simple, not recurring to complex technological operations.

FS: Is your design influenced by data or analytical research in any way? What kind of research did you conduct for making this design?
CS: Yes, well, some scandinavian influences are responsible for the realisation of this design.

FS: How did you decide to submit your design to an international design competition?
CS: the commercial success of the product led me to submit it to the A´Design Award.


FS: Thank you for providing us with this opportunity to interview you.
