Tactile Illusion





Texture intrigues us to get tactile, up close and personal with surfaces that may have taken just seconds to create or hundreds of years to form. 
Imagine you had never seen this kitchen, imagine you were blindfold and asked to describe or even name the material placed in front of you! 
The deep channels formed naturally within the material to help sustain the organisms life along with the pleasant surface temperature may allow your finger tips to correctly identify the material as being wood.  But when you open your eyes the picture is not how you imagined.
The treatment of this solid oak celebrates its natural form while camouflaging its identity as something else.  Stone, plaster and manmade could all be visual assumptions but the careful positioning of this ageless texture against more refined finishes gives this concept an artistic and forward thinking edge!

  1. These look cool but not sure for a daily use kitchen. They would be a pain to clean.
