The deliberately uneven, wonky angles serve to accentuate the individuality of each piece of material. Each piece of material iis at a different stage of aging – the oak has weathered and the copper had been left outside for a month.
The artful exterior disguises the fact that this is a functional piece – the sideboard opens up and has a set of 5 drawers. It even has built in candle holders – as if it wasn’t quaint enough (in an industrial sort of way).
As Dezeen’s Jaime Derringer said:
It’s funny, I used to be obsessed with perfection and symmetry and these days all I look for is something that’s completely uneven – as asymmetrical as possible.
