Shift

Lead DesignerEckhard Beger
Prize(s)2nd Place in Home Interior Products / Interior Furniture
Entry Description

Shift by ArteNemus is a chest of drawers based on the shape of a rhombohedron. The tilted geometric outline of the creation suggests instability while seemingly random marquetry bands give the impression of keeping the structure from falling apart. The high contrast combination of African ebony and flamed maple emphasizes the aesthetic tension of the piece. Shift is an object beyond pure function whose high quality craftsmanship emphasize its high-end appearance.
