Modern Marquetry

18th March 2010

I really love this modern marquetry piece from Studio Job to be launched during Milan furniture fair.

Using Indian rose wood inlaid with maple - what makes these so striking is the balance between the natural and the artificial - using laser cutting technology to create the inlay forms and the form of the furniture creates a truly twenty first century piece using a traditional 18th century technique.

The aesthetic is a strong one being driven by studio Job at the moment as also demonstrated by their wall paper for the Viktor and Rolf show in Paris earlier this month
