London design studio Raw Edges has created a collection of zigzag-patterned furniture using pieces of wood that have been dipped into angled buckets of dye. The studio, led by designers Shay Alkalay and Yael Mer, created the Herringbone collection of tables, chairs and a screen by staining planks of untreated jelutong and pine wood in buckets of colourful dyes, each placed at a 45 degree angle.
The result is a multi-layered, multicoloured pattern – while the dye does soak through into the top layer of the wood, the grains and textures remain visible. Raw Edge’s Herringbone collection is on show from 12 to 17 April at the Spazio Sanremo in Milan’s 5vie design district.
