In the ‘Passage Collection’ old and new techniques meet. The traditional craft of patterned wooden floors and wood inlaying is translated to the modern technique of laser cutting. The collection includes a carpet, table, sidetable, plateau and room divider.
Esther Jongsma graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven with this work ‘Passage’ in 2013. In this collection, old and new techniques meet. The traditional craft of patterned wooden floors and wood inlaying is translated to the modern technique of laser cutting. Initially, the ‘Passage Collection’ included a carpet and a room divider. Later, the collection expanded with a table, side table and a plateau.
The intricate pattern and design of the ‘Passage Plateaus’ consists of a wooden inlayed, graphical pattern, and is finished with a smooth satin gloss. They are developed as an sample for the table top and available in several colours.
The intricate pattern and design of ‘Passage Table’ consists of a wooden inlayed, graphical pattern, and is finished with a smooth satin gloss. The table is supported by solid, metal legs with a-centric feet resulting in a slightly lighter base that can be easily deconstructed. Additionally, the table can be requested with a plain, white oak tabletop without graphical pattern for those who prefer a more simple design.
‘Passage Table’ can be requested in various sizes; check the catalogue for more information.
The work reflects Jongsma’s fascination with barriers and tresholds, focusing especially on the process of passing and overcoming them. When you approach the room divider or walk alongside the carpet, the pattern changes. Whereas a barriernormally is static, here it mirrors the movement of those approaching it.
As a room divider, ‘Passage’ functions as an actual treshold, partitioning a room into different areas. As a carpet, the work puts up a barrier in the room: do we still step on the carpet when it’s made out of a different material than we’re used too, or does its three dimensionality limit our moving space?
The pattern and design of ‘Passage Side table’ consists of a Passage Plateau top. The table is supported by solid wooden legs referring to the pattern at the top.
