Reality Glitch: Digital Distortion in Physical Furniture Form

This really has to be the most amazing piece of furniture I have ever seen.  
 

Art imitates life … and sometimes furniture copies computer errors. Yes, you are seeing these images right: they depict an actual piece of carefully carved furniture, not a photo file gone wrong.

Ferruccio Laviani created this off object using CNC processes – hand-cutting such an object would be nigh on impossible. Make from oak, it looks delicate, intricate and solid, up to the points where distortion takes over and sharply (literally, so be careful!) bends and twists it an improbable angles.

From the press release: “Echoes of faraway places and Oriental elements are glimpsed in the “disorienting” design of this storage unit, which seems to have been “deformed” by a strong jolt or by swaying movements. Although it appears to depart from the aesthetics of the past, in fact it draws upon ancient knowledge in the use of carving and fine wood workmanship.”

And where does it fit within the canon of tradition and style? “The appeal of this extraordinary piece of furniture lies in its ability to overturn and question classical stylistic principles such as purity, cleanness and symmetry, while evoking a comforting feeling of deja-vù and a sort of primitiveness, matched by unquestionable craftsmanship.”

Partial Underground Living: Edgeland Residence by Bercy Chen Studio

To say that I am a fan would be an understatement.

Edgeland Residence by Bercy Chen Studio is an interesting approach to modern house design in that it utilizes the Native American Pit House concept.

A Pit House is typically sunken in the ground taking advantage of the earth’s thermal changes and shelter to offer regulated temperatures. We featured the Wells Underground House a while back that also incorporated this concept.

The Edgeland Residence modernizes the Pit House in that it uses the earth’s shelter in conjunction with high performance systems such as the integrated hydronic HVAC system. The architects explain that the mechanical system “combines hydronic heating & cooling, geothermal heat exchange, phase-change thermal heat storage and a green roof for maximum energy efficiency. The project also features a smart pool that provides an additional thermal mass that ties into the geothermal system.”

I like the division of space – it feels like a grand entrance when you arrive at the home, and separate houses while living there. The central opening allows for cross breezes and circulation as well as sunlight.
