connecting wood

Known for designs which express materiality through rhythm, pattern and colour, Sanne Schuurman swaps out her go-to choice of plastics and foam for the wood-based materials of Finsa. To continue her highly visual motif derived from connections, the designer splits the sheet material into rods and blocks and then interlocks the components in geometric patterns. Turned on their sides and without using their plastic side topping, the fibrous filling is exposed and presented in a series of open weave wooden arrangements. Natural light and their surroundings are invited to interact with the colourful compositions through a complex circuit of striations and voids.
