INTERIOR Credenza by Brendan Jurich

Home > Winners > #36703


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
INTERIOR

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Credenza

INSPIRATION:
The development of this piece questioned how curiosity is provoked in a piece of furniture. The work is designed to surprise the observer with a desire to look further, know more, find a sense of intrigue and allow room for interpretation. This led to the exploration of two ideas. First is the notion of furniture as container, which leaves the interior undiscovered. Second, the role that ubiquitous furniture has on our engagement with it.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This credenza is designed to stimulate curiosity or encourage contemplation as you peer in or move around the piece. The interior is therefore not meant to be hidden, but instead becomes the foundation for which the viewer discovers the work.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
As the credenza has reflected geometry on all sides, spatial possibilities can explored by bringing the piece away from the wall. There is no formal concept of front, back and ends, so there are no limitations as to where it can be positioned. It is designed to be walked around, looked into and looked at.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The conceptual development of the credenza took 5 months, commencing late 2013. It took 5 weeks to manufacture by hand and was completed in May 2014. It was exhibited at the At Scale Exhibition, National Architecture Conference QV1 Perth, Western Australia in May 2014.

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

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The credenza is handcrafted from American Black Walnut and Victorian Ash. 31 frames comprising 124 individual components of quarter sawn Victorian Ash are assembled with mortice and tenon joints as the interior framework. These frames are housed between a top and base of walnut. The thinnest pieces of walnut at each end give the illusion of holding the entire structure together. The credenza is finished with two coats of KUNOS natural resin oil.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
width 1800mm x depth 500mm x height 760mm

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Most mass manufactured furniture can be regarded as a consumable item. Apart from the ecological consequences, being easily replaceable generates only a brief love affair with the experience of owning the piece. Once filled with possessions, it works no harder to generate a presence within a space. The design of this credenza attempts to dismantle the idea of furniture as container, by revealing the interior as a premise for intrigue and contemplation.

CHALLENGE:
The most difficult creative challenge was answering how to generate discovery and contemplation as a phenomenal experience within a familiar furniture typology. The most complex manufacturing challenge was making so many components of constantly altering dimensions come together to form a geometrically precise form which reveals a seemingly transparent yet very dense interior.
