Say you have clients that have different taste in furniture - he wants
traditional, she wants modern. Is that a big problem? Hell, no!
Give 'em both.
I have to go scrub my eyeballs now.
Let's destroy the write-up shall we?
Living in the era of contemporary design and architecture, people sometimes
need to look back (look, yes, but stop short of creating abominations) in
(the) past and come up with very fresh conventional (name one thing
conventinal about this piece) things. Things like this "Evolution" dresser
by Ferruccio Laviani (for Emmemobili), that has been concerted as the
evolution (if this is evolution, we're all doomed) of conventionality to
progressiveness. Beautifully hand-carved from oak wood (the worst choice
possible for the medium), the conventional side conserves a high detailed
carving on every inch (every inch? are you serious? the side is mostly
blank, the grain of the oaks hides nearly all of the carving) it holds, and
to balance it up (balance? what friggin balance?), the progressive side
offers a linear intelligent (intelligent... wouldn't have been my first
choice of words) design that adds a bit (?????)of modern. A great (read:
awful) concept wrapped in functionality, don't you think? (nope, I don't,
and neither did the designer) - via
For thirty years I have placed close attention to all
furniture that I have ran across, everything from flea
market junk to museum pieces, that is by far the ugliest
thing I have ever seen.
Hopefully they haven't somehow managed to destroy the BTU
content of the wood and it can be burned for heat.
I know where you are coming from, brother. When I saw that I thought
it was a Photoshopped joke and thought it was funny, then I read the
article and I felt like I had been kicked in the balls...only thing is
- I'd probably have recovered from being kicked in the balls more
quickly. I need a partial brain wipe.
No, Mike, that was me -- revisit the site, and look at comment #4. :-)
Looking at the site again, I was struck by the similarity between the
first name of the creator of that abomination (Feruccio) and the German word
verrueckt (German v is pronounced like English f).
Verrueckt means "crazy".
I'm sure that's just a coincidence.
