Bertus, by Alain Monnens, for Durlet.
Japanese architecture studio schemata poured color epoxy on the top board of school desks which were used in elementary schools. the now ‘flat’ desks were before uneven due to time deterioration or scribbling. although the school desks all have the same shape, they gradually gain individual character through the personal items of the pupil, like a school bag or a hat.
However, in this project, the individuality of the desks is regenerated through colors, thanks to the craftsmanship and expertise of nakamura shuhei. he reset the the unevenness to ‘flat’ with translucent color epoxy. Deep points are mirrored by dense colors and shallow points by more transparent shades. This project is part of the ‘flatproject’ series.
