Tesler-Mendelovitch is an emerging "textile design team [who] research and experiment a wide range of materials to create entirely new end stage products for industry and art." Their latest project, "Diamond Wood," is a series of tables and stools that are made from a new flexible wood surface. The layered veneer material is "lightweight and sustainable and composed of a thin, flexible, yet strong wood surface component that can be widely adapted to furniture and interior design."
The result looks something like a magically magnified bangle or jewelry box, thanks partly to their veneers. "By combining natural fibers with traditional craftsmanship and new technology, the team manipulates and blends familiar materials to create the aesthetic of this new series."
The collection was featured in the exhibition design for artist Sigalit Landau's Soil Nursing solo show at Paris's Kamel Mennour Gallery.
The striking contrast between the abstract marble sculptures and their highly geometric pedestals duly enhances the compelling grotesqueness of the former and the understated logic of the latter.
"Diamond Wood" by Tesler-Mendelovitch is available now through Talents Design.
