C1 Credenza by Marcus Friesl

Home > Winners > #26873


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
C1

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Credenza

INSPIRATION:
The inspiration of this piece was as a technology demonstrator of all the items that we have learned from creating projects for other clients. We wanted a clean, elegant and modern piece that had character and would elevate any space that it occupied.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The C1 is built with the care of time honored craftsmanship enhanced with innovative technology. This creates a piece that is highly precise yet embodied with warmth and character. We define this as emotive precision. The styling is both of its time and timeless. The thin metal shell provides all the support for the long span. Engineered self-supported cross plates underneath the drawers allow the unit to span uninterrupted without any center supports. This allows the C1 to float elegantly in space. The handles for the top drawers are embedded in the top metal shell, allowing a clean front face for the C1

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The way to operate the credenza is embedded in the form itslef. The finger pulls for the unit are embedded in the overall form, making the design and operation one cohesive element

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project was started in December 2011 in Los angeles, and after 4 prototypes

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

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
-

CHALLENGE:
The most difficult part was to ensure that all the separate manufactures worked towards the same tight tolerances. This was to ensure that when the wood and metal pieces met at the folds and bends we were able to maintain the level of precision

CLIENT/STUDIO/BRAND DETAILS
NAME:
MFdG - mf design group llc

PROFILE:
mf design group is a design and fabrication consultancy. We work with architects and contractors to bring complex geometry from concept through to fabrication and installation. Using a diverse group of fabricators, working in a wide variety of materials, we take into account their preferred method of fabrication and their specific tolerance requirements to ensure the highest level of precision. Our focus is design, whether ours or our clients; the visible design of the finished piece and the design of the internal components. Our aim is to minimize the number of components that make up a design, to make those fewer components do more, without affecting the desired composition. We are equally interested in aesthetics, functionality and how things are made.
