Minimal Marquetry

Like the other pieces of Studio Verbaan, Minimal Marquetry collection gives a good representation of minimalistic shapes and traditional craft. It’s design with an art approach and an artwork with design influences. The Minimal Marquetry collection is based on traditional art and craft. Applying pieces of veneer to a structure to form decorative designs. The technique may be applied to furniture, to decorative small objects with smooth, venerable surface or to freestanding panels appreciated in their own right. Minimal Marquetry collection is a simplified marquetry resembling a type of pattern, creating through the combination of fine oak veneer chosen for their grain, texture and colour. The pieces do feel like puzzles, with two dimensional cut shapes and interlocking forms that create patterns in unexpected ways. The 2D pieces comes with a solid oak frame and all the objects give a playful approach to decide how to hang our place.

X4 – SERIES

X4 is an ongoing series of simple graphic forms that create timeless and enduring designs. The handcraft wooden pieces sits somewhere between furniture, object and sculpture. The contrast of the minimalistic shapes and traditional craft, goes beyond the object’s functionality. With different influences like the graphic Bauhaus Art and the playful Memphis Design group, both iconic designers that combined functionality with a focus on simplicity and bold, modern shapes. The pieces are purposefully ambiguous, sitting just as happily in a domestic space as in an art gallery. The designs start as a 2D composition that we translate to a 3D object. The dominant black contours still gives a flat silhouette and different perspectives. Black can swallow light, or make thinks look sharp. Each design is handmade by Jordi Verbaan, where he starts with selecting carefully individual boards, matched for color, grain pattern and structural integrity. The use of traditional joinery methods maximizes strength, allows for seasonal wood movement and are intended to stand the test of time. All pieces are finished by hand with the traditional ebonizing wood process and hard wax oil.
