Blend Closet Column
Designed by Ward Wijnant
BLEND is inspired by the thought that out of one and the same tree, the same wood, different kind of patterns and structures can be gained.
BLEND is based on the idea to visualize the effect of different sawing techniques by emphasizing the woodgrains. By playing with the inlay work and grain directions, the wood shows a surprising new perspective.
About the designer
Ward Wijnant (1987, Tilburg) developed during his studies at the Wood and Furniture College various furniture making techniques and a broad material knowledge. However, the manufacture of a furniture piece was not enough for him; Ward missed depth, creativity and the story behind an object. At the Design Academy Eindhoven, he learned conceptual thinking and working. He graduated as an independent designer and started his own company in 2015.
