‘Grey on Gray’

For the purposes of the “Transitions” project commissioned by Baars & Bloemhoff, Visser & Meijwaard elected to work with the solid surface material HI-MACS. ‘One of the properties of this material is that it is thermally ductile and can be glued together with virtually no seams. These characteristics we found in the design of industrial plastic crates, which became the starting point in our design of the cupboard. Inspired by the technical aesthetic of these crates, our Grey on Gray design features an exoskeleton that has been used to fulfill both technical and decorative functions. By placing the rib-construction on the outside, the cupboard has become an monumental piece with a clear link to the archetypical crate. This recognizability in our design makes the cupboard visually attractive. We are currently working on the development of the cabinet, aiming to be able to produce it the same way plastic crates are produced.

Material: HI-MACS, Duropal Xtreme
