The skillfully carved wood furniture collection by the London-based Jan Henzel Studio is bound to give any residential dwelling a subtle fantastical twist. The pure unstained surface of the objects, combined with the playfully abstract designs, allow the furniture to be easily inserted in a variety of interior design settings -- from obscure modernity to overwhelming art deco pops.
The studio sets out to "explore traditional woodworking methods and digital technology" by respectfully handling the materials, utilizing good design and equipment resourcefulness to lessen waste and the impact on the environment. Jan Hendzel uses reclaimed timbers and English-grown hardwoods in his "experimentation of modern craftsmanship." The carved wood furniture is ever so slightly reminiscent of German Expressionism and the wondrously distorted world of the 'Cabinet of Doctor Caligari'.
