Creature Credenza by Evan Z. Crane
Designer Evan Z. Crane designed this quite unusual piece of furniture. Take a look at more images below.
This piece had lingered on the edge of my mind for quite some time. Honestly, I dared not speak of it or even draw a sketch for fear that I would loose its vague impression. I suppose the little things, simple sensory experiences can bring an idea together. I came across some amazing Icelandic sheep hide and it all clicked. The doors of the credenza are adorned with them. The challenge of this piece was getting many contrasting elements to work as one. The darkly stained solid walnut case and oxidized maple drawer fronts set up a gradation that finishes off with the stark white sheep hide. Finally, a custom textile from De Islas, their “duck pond” fabric is stretched over the interior of the doors like a canvas. It adds the quintessential playful element that makes this cabinet an exquisite creature.
