Between centers collection by Jorge de la Cruz

December 7th, 2012 by retail design blog

Series of wooden furniture developed from its production system: woodturning between centers. The collection includes a stool, a banquette and a table; available in maple wood and black-dyed birch wood. Woodturning consists in using a lathe to create revolution shapes. This process produces a ‘signs’ on the extreme of each piece created by the ‘drive centre’ and ‘dead centre’, which press the piece of wood to rotate it. Woodworkers usually remove these signs.

Keeping those signs and using it as symbols, the designer generates a link to tell the life of the object inside the factory. Also the symbols are the evidence that these pieces are made, one by one, with a lathe.
