Vellum is an annual design + build competition hosted by the College of Architecture & Environmental Design at Cal Poly. The purpose of the exhibition is to allow students to explore how to design and build a furniture piece of their choice, then have it judged by a panel of design experts.
Resurrekt is a piece reclaimed from a defunct piece of madrone wood. Some of the deepest matters lie in the dichotomy of mankind and nature. Many elements go unnoticed, such as the simple power cord and casual tree branch. Is there a way to elegantly join them in the context of light? Treated surfaces breathe new life into the greyed madrone wood. A raw concrete base anchors the piece. Silver-lined cords are draped loosely in places but wrapped tightly in others. Vintage-style LED bulbs are suspended to complete the setting.
Recall the forgotten and coalesce before the beautiful.
