Pia Maria Raeder’s art furniture is truly unique and stands out due to its very peculiar and exquisite forms and shapes.
SEA ANEMONE WALL MIRROR
From simple beech rods patiently sanded, cut, arranged and lacquered, the contemporary artist‘s designs refined functional sculpture art which evokes biomorphic forms. Each art furniture work is unique and handmade. More than 400 hours of work and 16,000 beech rods were necessary to design the ‘Sea Anemones – White’ art installation, made of three side tables completed by two sculptures with a very contemporary design.
SEA ANEMONE FLOOR LIGHT SCULPTURE
‘In my work on beech rods, I love the challenge of overcoming the contradictions in the material as I play with it. Natural beech rods are straight but combined at different heights, these rods take on a new form resembling a wave with shadowy reflections. A wooden rod, that is rigid in itself, becomes soft and rounded once sanded. The application of lacquer on the rods arranged in large numbers transforms the wood and underlines its movements.’
SEA ANEMONES FAMILY
Emancipated from its limits, the wood from the art furniture is offered a newfound freedom. The breath of life seems to animate these intriguing sculptures in which function and poetry fuse. Their presence in this furniture design is like the echo of nature’s murmur while their organic and biomorphic waves sketch the movement of life.
