composed surfaces

Drawing upon a building’s rhythmic patterns – such as the gridded joints within a masonry wall – Aukje Fleur Janssen seeks for the interaction between a form and its residual form. In her multi-material surfaces, a seam acts not only as a binding agent but becomes a defining part of its presence. By using a geometric language, her inlaid surfaces feature seemingly randomized motifs which take on a mosaic-like quality. The composite slabs can be used for a myriad of applications – from decorating floors and walls to working surfaces and countertops – to bring a scaled-down version of architectural building blocks indoors.
