About

Coffee mask is a cabinet for living room use which is entirely made of handcrafted particularly colorful Amazonian woods with inserts of photographical images, acrylic and Japanese paper. Being an important furniture piece it refers as well to a significant historical issue of the city of San Paulo where this piece has been created during our Artist-in-Residence program: The coffee cultivation. Coffee was the main reason for the cities impressive growth from 1850 and especially at the end of the 19th century. Therefore, the cabinet reveals through images many signs which are related to the coffee like coffee plantations, antique objects and typical coffee filter, country life versus city life with its skyscrapers and the cutting-edge penthouse on the top of the first skyscraper made of reinforced concrete in South America called the Martinelli building – built by one of the main precursors of the coffee “Boom” in the beginning of the 20th century. Many more references can be found, for example stamps of European immigrants who arrived at the port of Santos as well as invitation letters from the Hostelry in San Paulo, brand marks of slaves, Japanese playing cards used during train journeys, the outstanding infrastructure like railways, locomotives and steamships, details of the first train stations in San Paulo and the ocean where everybody needed to cross ... This piece is intended to be discovered from all sides and through several visual layers! The wooden openings in the front part of the cabinet form a stylized mask which was inspired by the Walù mask, a mythical antelope mask still used for rituals related to soil practiced by the Dogon people in Mali. During the centuries of slavery which ended officially in 1888 many West Africans arrived in the New Land – who contributed like the indigenous inhabitants as well as the huge amount of foreign nationalities to the at least 140 terms of skin color shades. Definitely a very narrative and anthropological piece! The wood finish is treated with wax and natural oil only. Used materials: handcrafted Amazonian and European woods, acrylic, 16 lambda prints, Japanese handmade paper, metal Unique edition of 10 + 1 a.p.

About The Maker

HILLSIDEOUT

View Profile
HILLSIDEOUT is an Italian-German collaboration which combines antique restoration techniques with contemporary mediums. Founded in 2009 by Andrea Zambelli and Nat Wilms, the brand name is a linguistic game related to their vision of furnishings that finds inspiration in an external element from the land by bringing it "out" into interiors. The idea of "restoration" but also of artistic concept is consistently present and works in harmony with the strong belief in the contemporary. "We love to see historical layers. This is why we show them through transparent materials and time related mediums such as photography." Andrea and Nat enjoyed an Italian education. Andrea (b. 1978 in Italy) is a professional restorer of furniture with more than 15 years working experience in Bologna dealing with wealthy family heritages dating from the early 17th to the mid 20th centuries. As a designer he believes in a possible re-interpretation of his former profession believing that ancient skills of application, which are slowly disappearing, should be preserved. The insertion of innovative materials using antique manufacturing skills is based on the historical furniture tradition but also renews it at the same time. Nat (b. 1976 in Germany) is a freelance artist with a degree in Sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna/Italy. She graduated in cultural-visual Anthropology in 2006 and works since then as a designer, a conceptualist as well as a teacher of multimedia classes.
