Description

MdSt Studio studio considers furniture and especially handcrafted furniture to live with people for a lifetime or more. The large dimensioned platter is made from poplar trees who lived near to the river. The studio gave part of the trunks a new life by making a platter of it. The form of the platter is rough, a bit archetypal. It has strong influences of the comic films where the suggestion to indicate an object is more important than the personal details of it. It is made on a lathe and the details are made with a saw. The platter emphasizes the fact that wood never dies: cracks, restorations, changes of color are all part of the process of ‘life’. The forms are developed to sustain and show this qualities, to make beings of our objects.

MdSt-studio is very concerned about nature. Therefore they do not want to make a piece other than when they adjust content and form that reminds the buyer of the importance to keep our earth healthy and alive. MdSt works with local woods that are not accepted by the economic market, and works with a very low ecological footprint. The studio is able to make all the avant garde objects with only the help of hand tools or with electrical tools that are only used very shortly to arrive at the desired product. This enables the studio to show that it is possible to make sophisticated avant garde design with traditional hand tools and respect for the environment.

I saw my first Design exhibition when I was 5 years old. Later I found the world of existing objects overwhelming : Design is dead ... I agreed that statement of Philip Starck ... and I decided not to adjust one object on this world if it was not based, by content and appearance and construction method on the idea to make a healthier world and a world with more respect for other beings than humans on this globe. Therefore I combined my professions: sculptor, designer and curator of crafts in a personal way. The beauty in my work results from a research to reveal the soul of the matter: wood in most of the cases. Local, waste wood more exactly . Also wood that can stand the climate change. Wood is a renewable energy ... Also I make the ecofootprint to make the pieces very very low .... it is possible to make them with handtools like saw, lathe, chisel .... to show that also in the future, in difficult times we can make avantgarde and respect the climate at the same time. Sculptors reveal a form, show often honest the nature of their material and let it speak as well .... and adjust content.... by the title, by the explanation ... and that is what I am doing as well: I hope that users will see my objects as 'beings' ... to live with., in mutual respect. This objects are objects who will serve you as long as you do not use them thoughtless. Anyway ... the way I made them is also in respect for the fact that wood never stops moving: never stops being alive ... it cracks, distortions are a part of the process : it is a modern form of wabi sabi.
