DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Rodolfo

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Console table

INSPIRATION:
Was inspired by how you can design a furniture and yet provide 2 different designs depending on which side you are looking at. This console table has 2 designs in one.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The basic frame is made of mahogany and black veneer and with the Pinnidae as design detail. They are a taxonomic family of large saltwater clams sometimes known as pen shells. The pen shells are easily available in the waters of the Philippines.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
-

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Conceptualization started September 2013. Prototyping began in October 2013 and it will be exhibited in Maison Asia Singapore March 2014.

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

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
All the materials used in the Rodolfo have been sourced from sustainable materials and means of production: Kiln dried Mahogany is a fast growing hardwood, and both Mahogany and the pen shells are farmed and sourced locally in the Philippines.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
1500mm X 400mm X 850mm

TAGS:
Pen shells, furniture, console table, mohogany, Filipino, Asian

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
It was important that the pattern of the wood veneer is evident so we decided to initially be brown veneer and we painted over to achieve the black with wood pattern. The use of pen shells was a good choice to contrast the blackness of the veneer and provide an organic feel.

CHALLENGE:
The shape of the inner structure makes it very interesting and we made sure that it could support a good weight on top to serve as a console table. The pen shells was meticulously glued to give a shine and touch or color.
