Kidney Tables

In Depth studies
Konstfack 2013


Last year I started to work with the idea of the three dimensional translations when my sister proposed me to collaborate in our first project together.

She created a series of screen prints inspired in kidney shapes that reference this typology from the 60’s that inspired her so much as a pattern designer, elaborating a composition of oval shapes combining soft green and yellow tones.

I translated some of her pattern designs onto a tangible material, wood, precisely Ash. A family of four nesting tables with the same shape of the kidneys she previously illustrated, stained on the same colors with natural pigment and tung oil that allowed the natural texture of the ash to be perceived.
