Vésanie / Mobilier

<p>I&#39;m in my last year of studies&nbsp;in <strong>arts and crafts</strong> and <strong>cabinet making</strong>. To <strong>graduate</strong> I have to design and make a piece of furniture, the theme is &quot;<strong>The meaning of emptiness</strong>&quot;.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><img width="100%" alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/487471/brainstorming-1518769407.jpg" /></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>I&rsquo;ve done a lot of researches, I decided to make a piece of furniture about <strong>madness</strong>. I started with emptiness as a <strong>feeling</strong>, the emptiness which <strong>frightens</strong>. The fear to be alone (surrounded by emptiness) that can drive someone to madness. Broadly speaking humans are afraid of emptiness because it represents the <strong>unknown, infinite and void</strong>. Despite the fact that emptiness can be essential to human stability. Emptiness is also a form of <strong>liberty</strong>, meanwhile too much liberty could be scary.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><strong>Overconsumption</strong> is also a form of emptiness.&nbsp;It is the desire to have always more objects, very often <strong>useless</strong> or superficial, to consume excessively, well <strong>above our needs</strong>.&nbsp;This overconsumption is somehow meaningless, <strong>purposeless</strong>. Because it&#39;s ultimately a way to consume, to exist even, which makes <strong>no sense</strong> since it leads to our loss.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><img width="100%" alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/487247/Capture_d_e_cran_2018-02-15_a__14.55.24-1518702951.png" /></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>This piece would be composed of a kind of <strong>parallelepiped envelope</strong> from which <strong>slices</strong> emanate,&nbsp;as if the whole&nbsp; decomposed in an <strong>anarchic way</strong>, and came out of its frame.&nbsp;These visual disturbances are also an analogy to <strong>our own follies</strong>.&nbsp;The main envelope would be <strong>unadorned</strong>, thanks to the <strong>wavy grained sycamore</strong> producing a contemporary look.&nbsp;Only the faces of the slices would still suggest madness using <strong>psychedelic</strong> motifs of various origins.&nbsp;The effect will have to be resolutely eclectic.&nbsp;As if the extravagance came from within and it demonstrated itself by pushing the boundaries of the frame.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><img width="100%" alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/487336/sycomore_onde_fil_img_4571__020660900_0931_17052016-1518717524.jpg" /></p><p><u>Wavy grained sycamore</u></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><strong>// Use</strong></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>The user will have to be <strong>bewildered</strong> as if against something crazy. How to open it ? By which openings ? To access what ? The first impression will be <strong>disconcerting</strong>, disturbing. At first glance the fa&ccedil;ade will be rather <strong>simple</strong>, divided into <strong>nine doors</strong>. But all do not give access to storage, some will be unreachable, others cut into several parts while they are one. Furniture can be accessed from both sides, so <strong>two sides of usage</strong> and up to <strong>four</strong>. There will be a side drawer and upper parts that can act as storage while still using different opening systems. The furniture would be composed of &quot;traps&quot; or &quot;hiding places&quot; as if it were necessary <strong>to get to know it</strong>, to appropriate and better define it, as we would do with our own follies. The more you tame your madness, the more you try to understand it and better you manage to adjust.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><img width="100%" alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/487833/imageouvertures-1518865433.jpg" /></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><img width="100%" alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/487489/ge_ometral-1518771068.jpg" /></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><strong>// Inspiration</strong></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><img width="100%" alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/487340/marbrure12-1518717922.jpg" /></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>First tests on paper and wood veneers with paper marbling technique.</p><p>Prototype part.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><img width="100%" alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/491602/marbrure1-1519851607.jpg" /></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><img width="100%" alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/489251/marbrure-1519241438.jpg" /></p>
