carved maple lattice, white enameled steel, and oxidized walnut
72” wide x 24” deep x 32” tall
Inspired by brise-soliel - an architectural feature designed to break the sun by casting shadows - we set out to reference this at furniture scale. Carved maple lattice creates a continuous grid that doubles as drawer pulls. The enameled steel case stands on fifteen pilotis.
We used Gustavo Capanema Palace as a precedent to provide a point of reference for the project although it certainly isn’t the first example of an architectural sunbreaker.
See historic examples such as jaali, mashrabiya, and other “openwork” that creates shaded, permeable architecture for air to flow.
Similar to these traditional structures, the lattice is handmade and finished without the use of a CNC to execute its delicate joinery.
