Bamboo Credenza

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Furniture

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.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
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 'electronic9;.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Electronic components like the television, game systems, and speakers can be housed in the credenza and elegantly integrated into the design of the structure itself, while hiding connections to peripherals and outlets. The simple and straightforward organization of cabinets makes for easy access to remotes, gaming components and manuals.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project began in June 2009 in Boston, MA, and finished in January 2011.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION 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.

CLIENT/STUDIO/BRAND DETAILS
NAME:
BUTZ + KLUG Architecture

PROFILE:
The continuing aspiration of our office is to create buildings of extraordinary beauty. This is not only rewarding to us but also serves the best interest of our clients both immediate day-to-day life and long term economic interests. To that end we assemble a team that has the same aspirations, from our employees to contractors and artisans. The ‘style’ of our work varies form project to project depending on client, budget and site (context and local). Using these conditions as a point of departure produces a uniqueness that characterizes each project. We also enjoy the belief that utility and beauty often have the same ends, and that these ends are unrelated to economics and style. We also believe that beauty grows exponentially in the details and fabric of the building. We are described as obsessive and we enjoy that description, knowing that the details amplify the operative ideas of our work, contribute a continual sense of wonder and enjoyment to those that use our buildings and add an unmatched value to our clients.
