Crooked Balance House
The Crooked furniture collection is the result of Hillsideout’s ongoing research on the opposition between construction and destruction. The continuous architectural transformation of historical buildings lead to the idea of an organic furniture collection. Every piece emphasizes the leitmotiv ‘I don’t fall’, combines contradictory elements and often features curved elements.
Mainly made of acrylic on a wooden structure, the Crooked Balance House is almost completely transparent. Two little wooden doors appear in front, revealing materials such as Italian walnut, cherrywood and colored Murano glass. Four wooden columns from 1820 become unusual bent legs by applying an old restoration technique. Ironically, this technique is normally used for straightening damaged table legs. In this way the restoration process becomes visible. The black resin poured over the columns strengthen further the antique wood.
The wood finish is treated with wax and natural oil only.
