Chinese-German architecture firm Cheungvogl uses old wood planks from Chinese boats to create an amazingly beautiful installation. Wood designs are becoming more popular in modern decor, offering a rustic feel in contemporary settings. The use of naturally aged timber offers a touch of history and a beautifully antique appeal.
The wooden cabinets made for Aesop, a shop located in Hong Kong, are assembled using the timber material left in its original state, which is decayed and worn out. The natural-made holes in the planks become the handles to open and close the drawers. This design is meant to be a representation of time and it's clearly visible through the use of naturally decaying wood. This is a gorgeous example of recreating furniture with the use of old materials.
