Hand-Carved Glitch Furniture by Ferruccio Laviani


The Good Vibrations Storage Unit, a hand-carved wooden piece that appears warped and distorted by a glitch, was created by architect Ferruccio Laviani for the 2013 Furniture Exhibition.

The fanciful blending of styles is paired with an innate sense of wittiness to produce furniture like the Good Vibrations storage unit. Selected for a preview of this new collection, the piece exemplifies this new design philosophy and the harmonious juxtaposition of the languages and cultures it is based upon.

Echoes of faraway places and Oriental elements are glimpsed in the “disorienting” design of this storage unit, which seems to have been “deformed” by a strong jolt or by swaying movements. Although it appears to depart from the aesthetics of the past, in fact it draws upon ancient knowledge in the use of carving and fine wood workmanship.


UPDATE: According to Colossal, the image is a rendering but Studio Laviani is creating a final piece of furniture that will be on display in April.
