open board

As a rhythmical composition of wood materials, Sanne Schuurman’s open and dynamically textured boards display the versatility of Finsa’s material through a sophisticated play of structure and repetition. Working with small elements as well as large building blocks, coming from splitting pieces of Finsa material, the open boards produce an interesting play of colour, material, light, and space. We’re given insight in the boards’ thickness and sandwich of textures and by angling our point of view, different wood identities are shown – exposing the roughly textured filling of the boards, the coloured melamine layers and different matte colours of MDF. Now with bigger, industrial means, Schuurman shows us a play of zooming in and out, scaling up her open boards from wood in process allowing it to range from a repetitive industrial pattern, or an autonomous piece of board standing monumentally in the space.
