‘Patchwork’sideboard by Judith Seng
Judith seng is a Berlin based multi disciplinary designer who describes her practice’s work as ‘cultural research and design’. Her designs span graphic design to product design with the primary focus on furniture. Seng’s approach is very much about the exploration of new concepts in furniture design, questioning the standard and provoking the new. The ‘ Patchwork’ sideboard was first showcased in Milan in 2008 and is made of recycled painted wood off cuts and forms part of a limited edition of 25 pieces . It is a perfect contemporary interpretation of a sideboard with vintage 50’s style references and an eco pedigree.
Her approach to her design projects is much more that of a conceptual artist with her chosen materials providing the palette for the creation of new works that challenge our pre conceptions about the particular design objects that she re-invents.
She studied Product and Process Design at the University of the Arts Berlin whilst also working for Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec in Paris and the Imaginary Manufactory (DIM) in Berlin. In 2005 she set up her own studio in Berlin. Her work has been exhibited internationally and forms part of several museum collections.
