Best Material Innovation

Functionalism joints crafts in the conceptual work of PATINA.
PATINA comes from the idea of the simple chair inspired by an iconic Van Gogh painting.

Patina is a sign of the aging of a material. A deterioration of matter.
A process that is culturally and romantically aestheticized.
PATINA designs are made from discarded melamine particle boards, that are not known for weathering - simply because the material breaks before the process begins.

PATINA is a play between functionalism and traditional crafts. The yielding elements mimicking the craft of the woodworker. Surfaces of strokes, like a type of Van Gogh veining. Building up and decomposing the surface and material. The overall structure is held together with a Rietveld join, and the glass shelves are an iconic material from our modern world achitecture.
