The return to sustainable, natural materials and organic design has been manifesting for a while and continues to evolve. Crūde, as an interior design firm, has recognized this shift. They go beyond traditional boundaries, venturing into the realm of furniture design with a unique approach. The Murakami Table, Paris Table, Ernest Desk, and other designs reflect Crūde's philosophy: conscious simplicity and the soulful irregularities of raw materials.
What immediately stands out is the mastery of various furniture pieces. The Murakami Table exudes serenity, consisting of six carefully placed pieces where airy lines create subtle separations, allowing passages for natural light. Crafted from solid oak and finished with natural oil, it is a timeless piece designed to gracefully age. The Paris Table redefines shared intimacy in a social context, with its narrow, elongated configuration inviting proximity among diners, promoting informal gatherings inspired by the concept of a ‘pique-nique.’ The versatile Ernest Desk functions both as a standalone desk and a seamless extension of a sleeping space. Based on balanced geometry, it is designed to meet the demands of a dynamic living environment. Crūde's furniture collection is more than just a visual expression; it is a continuous evolution. Each piece, born from the need for uncomplicated, high-quality furniture, is tailored to the specific requirements of each interior design project. The designs resonate with natural materials, emphasizing the rich stability of natural wood.
Belief in preserving craft tradition
Crūde intentionally embraces the imperfections of natural materials and acknowledges the passage of time, resulting in furniture with a soulful character that develops over the years. It doesn't just design furniture; it creates a lifestyle where design is experienced on two levels of consciousness: the logic of function and the spiritual nuances of the creative process. The designs are not industrially produced objects with a limited lifespan; they are made to be passed down through generations. Colors are applied by hand, yielding an irregular patina and making the craftsmanship of each artisan palpable. Crūde believes in preserving the craftsmanship tradition of carpentry and collaborates with new generations of carpenters to uphold this tradition.
Furniture is inherently tied to our daily routines. Our focus on designing for sustainability revolves around the intrinsic quality of materials and the essence within the form. Each design is a conscious exploration of geometry, material, and ways of life.
