Nominee: Dirk Oosterink with Desk DO6
Category Home Interior: Design Desk DO6
In this design I explore the tension between classic and contemporary styles. The outline looks almost futuristic, but a closer view reveals the craftsmanship that truly sets this piece of furniture apart.
This secretaire is constructed of 100% American Walnut. This material offers a warm and luxurious appearance. During production, I’ve paid a lot of attention to making sure every piece of wood comes into it’s own. For instance, The drawers and slats are made out of a single piece of wood, resulting in a continuing motive through the different parts.
Shapes likes these, as well as the solid woodwork used, made it necessary to use only handcrafted dovetail joints. For me the beauty of this piece lies in details like these. The joints, the shapes, the materials used in the different elements; every detail is thought out, every choice the result of a vision.
That is what makes this secretaire a special and unique piece of furniture.
