Wooden furniture inspired by patchwork

DESIGN

Patchwork is a technique of cutting and sewing small pieces of fabric creating larger textiles. However, the idea of joining diverse fabrics together and creating completely new designs, has not only inspired quilters and textile artists but also furniture designers. These are some of the most interesting examples that apply the philosophy of patchwork into furniture making.

  • Commode by Entwurf-Direkt. According to the creators the design of these objects is basically an antidesign as its respective shape is a result of putting together the findings as they come along. This can be compared to a remix done with pieces of music or else a collage as found in the arts. Each piece of furniture is a unique specimen, as they depend on the findings that are not available in unlimited numbers.
