DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Black Labyrinth

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Chest of drawers

INSPIRATION:
Black Labyrinths outline is inspired by the clean lines of the Bauhaus styles while the outline of the drawers is inspired by Asian medical cabinets. The geometric appearance of the bright marquetry on a black veneer background adds aesthetic tension to the creation. Its layout is based on three foci from which rays depart.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Black Labyrinth is a vertical chest of drawers with 15 drawers. Its dark architectural appearance is contrasted by the light marquetry rays with three focal points as their origin. The intriguing conception and mechanism of the vertical drawers with their rotating compartments complements the piece's understated outline. The wood structure is covered with black dyed ebony veneer while the marquetry is made in flamed maple. The veneer is oiled to achieve a satinated appearance.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Black Labyrinth is a functional piece of art. As such and given its marquetry it is meant to be free standing. As a chest of drawers Black Labyrinth is designed to store documents and smaller items in its 15 drawers. The vertical drawers with their rotating compartments are designed to keep A4 documents.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Black Labyrinth is functional piece of art. It's vertical drawers are meant to be aesthetically intriguing when seen from the outside. Their rotating compartments are designed to hold A4 documents.

CHALLENGE:
The main aesthetic design challenge was the layout of the bright marquetry lines. Looking at Black Labyrinth from the front perspective, rays depart from three foci to cover the face. By mirroring the layout on the other faces the width of marquetry lines can be kept constant. thereby simplifying the manufacturing process. From a functional design perspective, the installation of the extension mechanisms for the the vertical drawers was a particular challenge as the objective was to make the as little visible as possible. By using brush seals the mechanisms could be made as little visible as possible.
