About

The crooked furniture collection presents a continuation of our ongoing research in construction vs. destruction and features curved elements. The continuous architectural transformation of historical buildings lead to the idea of an organic furniture collection that is able to emphasize the leitmotiv 'I don't fall' and to combine contradictory elements. The Crooked Balance represents a real showcase as it is almost completely transparent, mainly made of acrylic with a wooden structure. The two little wooden doors in front are made from Italian walnut and cheerywood and three colored Murano glasses. The four wooden columns from 1820 were transformed into bent legs by applying an old restoration technique, which is normally used for straightening damaged table legs. In this way the restoration process becomes visible. The black resin which was poured over the columns strengthen further the antique wood being at the same time evocative. The wood finish is treated with wax and natural oil only. Used materials: Four wooden columns from 1820, handcrafted walnut and cheerywood, transparent and sanded acrylic, colored Murano glass, black epoxy resin, screws of brass Unique edition Exhibitions of the first crooked furnishings 09.04. - 14.04.2013 SaloneSatellite "Design and craftsmanship: together for industry" at the Milan Fairgrounds in Rho, Italy 08.04.-13.04.2014 Fuorisalone 2014 at spazio Rossana Orlandi in Milan, Italy where they continue being available.

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.
