Installation at Designers’ Saturday

The Sound of Oak, 2010

Bauwerk Parkett, Switzerland

The Sound of Oak, an installation for Bauwerk Parkett at Designers' Saturday 2010, resembling a small city and built of thousands of parquet pieces.

This installation at Designers’ Saturday 2010 speaks to all the senses. A five and a half metre tall parquet construction is reminiscent of a small city. In its highest tower the exhibition visitors discover a space smelling of wood, the walls of which are made from thousands of small pieces of parquet piled on top of each other. On the roof, a ventilator made in oak parquet turns bullroarer instruments that create a primeval sound.
