KITCHEN | PERSONAL
As one of the most essential spaces in every home,
a kitchen must be both comfortable and durable,
and just as importantly, suit the people who live in it.
The client is an inseparable part of design decisions,
and the result is one of a kind.
IT’S TIME TO TALK ABOUT BATHROOM FURNITURE
Bathroom furniture must be highly durable,
which is why we use water-resistant birch plywood, painted with durable colors.
Reclaimed materials also undergo thorough preparation and painting in resistant two-component varnishes.
Using existent furniture usually requires changes to inner structure, to adjust it to plumbing and sink installation, and for enhanced ease of use.
We use drawers with concealed runners, full extension and soft closing by the Austrian Blum company.
Planning a library is always a challenge.
I recommend clients dive into their book collection, so they can understand the right height for their individual library.
LIFE – ART – DESIGN
Here are some reasons why I love working with existing or reclaimed materials, whether furniture parts or ready-made:
The frequency of unexpected challenges requires high problem-solving skills and mental flexibility.
This process, which one may compare to meditation in motion,
is well manifested in the result.
The sentiment or nostalgia for a known material or form arouses in me and in every human being; the action of taking an existing object and putting it to a new use, cleverly and tastefully changing its function. This is a personal statement I need to make. The ecological aspect of reusing and recycling is a bonus.
ABOUT | STUDIO
AMIR WEISER | OWNER
I got involved with carpentry after years of working on surfing and windsurfing boards, boats, and yachts (carpentry and working with composites). I am fascinated by the meeting place of precise planning and reality – almost like that of body and soul. There is always plenty of room for action and thought in carpentry –different craftsmen working by the same plan will deliver (slightly or highly) diverse results. The dynamics of interaction with client and designer (if there is one) also affects the result. A plan by an architect or designer (there are MANY different kinds of plans) sets off a process that may be short, or long and thorough – sometimes all you have to do is deliver, and at other times it's an invitation to dig deeper…
HOW DOES IT WORK? | WHERE DO WE BEGIN?
With a conversation. A search for a sentiment, selecting a material that gives just the right feel. To find it, we will sit down for a proper talk, examine photographs and inspirations; I will show some examples for relevant materials, and we will get an idea of where we are headed. I will explain whatever requires explanation, but not too much – it's not yet time to get too technical. It is absolutely fine and even recommended to bring along your architect or designer. In the next stages, we will be going over mockups and approve drawings before manufacture, as well as get color samples from the painter so there are no mistakes.
