undertone

Comprised and composed as if coming from the gloomy corners of Elvis Wesley’s world (de Boer’s eccentric alter ego), the designer’s previous project Graved Grids staged a landscape of black, architectural, grid structures – some stained with a lustrous finish of wax. It was this umbral coloration of the blackboard material, Finsa became particularly interested in and found essential to develop further. Diving deeper, the designer transformed the protective performance of wax finishes into a decorative and appealing element of the board. By applying different colours of finishing in an irregular manner, a varicoloured range of black and grey hues appear, carrying a depth that is both durable and alluring.
