ARCHITECTS and furniture designers share the dialectal of form, hue and quality. Materials — whether they are concrete or wood — are surveyed for their opportunities, how they send strong ideas or styles of sensation.
The preliminary drafts of the architect are essentially parallel with those of the furniture designer, as they envision how design could be deciphered to a complete creation: a building shaped for human use or a chair to be sat upon.
Dumaguete City architect Ned Carlos is one of those who have begun the leap to the world of furniture. A fragment of the urge has been carried about by a lack of sleek minimalist furniture in Negros Oriental. One more facet of it is driven by a design intercession of discerning the conceivable works that could change the interior look of an eclectic house.
What has begun as an intense incursion into Molave hardwood has now transmuted into furniture design. With his accent on simplicity, the architect’s furniture attains an exciting external, which acts as a contrast to the arches and curves of the existing house.
Architect Ned’s expressive textures provide the foundation for his nonverbal aesthetic as it preserves its refined austereness. The sweep of straight lines becomes a recurring and lineated parade of wood against the white surface of the concrete walls.
While it is willingly apparent that the architect contributes to the philosophy of minimalism, the architect orients essentials of the natural wood set against the white background that has rehabilitated a defining feature of the house. The furniture is projected not as sovereign surroundings but as bands of wood receptive to the desires of an internal space — an imperative feature in how the architect has imagined the house interior to be.
Architect Ned’s primary incursion into the furniture world demonstrates that explicit thinking is communal by myriad architects who simply select their style of expression. His acute sagacity of structure, equilibrium and quantity in architecture has assisted him well in this assemblage of works of anthropometrics and exquisiteness.
