Inlay Furniture Collection 1

Swedish design group Front has created the Inlay Furniture Collection in collaboration with Italian brand Porro. The design of the furniture collection is based on the ancient decorating technique Inlay. In designer’s words, “Recovering the ancient and precious tradition of inlay, Inlay, a dining room cupboard and a chest of drawers with 2 drawers, covered with a 3D decorations evoking a parallelepiped composition crossing in space.

Squares, rectangles and trapezes carefully cut with sharp edges lead to a geometric pattern, an intricate sequence of volumes which apparently protrude from the surface of such two home units, raised from the floor thanks to a plinths, as really rising from the floor. Inlay are the result of an accurate processing, alternating 6 different natural oak colours separated by a dark profile: a sort of frame separating the different texture faces thus offering a unique unit, immediately reflecting the love for wood processing.”
