Artistry of Solid Wood by Casimir

November 27, 2018

Pure Essence

Artistry of Wood by CasimirThe elegant and minimalist furniture by Belgian designer Casimir is not only beautiful: by stripping his designs to their core, the designer often reveals thought-provoking questions and also a hint of subversion.

The Nakeddressoir, for instance, reduces the familiar sideboard to its essence by removing the top and front panels, showcasing the utilitarian beauty of the normally concealed shelves and drawers.

The Vitrine and Ladderrack2 are exercises in restraint, the former abstracting a display cabinet into a set of floating shelves suspended within a sleek wooden frame, the latter a monumental shelf created by combining simple ladders and racks.

Trunk is a daringly simple bench made of planks of solid wood joined together to create a stylised version of a hollowed-out tree trunk, whilst Max is a chair-with-a-drawer which questions what makes it a chair as opposed to a dressing table.

The subversive theme continues with Pallet, the ubiquitous packaging essential  crafted beautifully in luxurious solid oak; Trestle1+Crate3, a cabinet comprising a crate on top of a trestle, again in solid oak; and Longtable3, an expansive tabletop balanced delicately on three seemingly randomly placed legs inspired by roof beams. 

This is a beautiful collection which combines craftsmanship and intellectual rigour in equal measures, perfect for creating a thought-provoking interior.
