Namibia Credenza – Evolution Revolution

In his obsession with nature and ongoing exploration of water, Ilan Dei has created a contrasting collection between well crafted contemporary furniture and urban graffiti.  Unnoticeable at first glance the graffiti is like a seedy underbelly of the furniture that you can only experience from certain angles and interactions. The elegant wood credenza, console and side table were inspired by Dei’s travels to the desert coastlines of Namibia, while the subtly constrained graffiti is applied as an urban infusion inspired by the street art around the Venice Beach Studio.

Inspired by the always changing surfaces and textures of water, this private residence fireplace captures the same interplay of light and shadows that you see in smooth water ripples. This video documents the process from the initial sketches, through 3D modeling in Rhino, to building the finished fireplace using 3D milling, fiberglass molding and plaster.

Urban Log Collection

Posted in limited edition with tags , , , on March 15, 2010 by Ilan Dei Studio

The Urban Logs Collection from Ilan Dei Studio is the latest line of furniture to be released in their limited edition collection. Focusing on “urban renewal” each piece gives new life to urban and suburban trees that have been previously removed and are destined to become waste or firewood. Naturally every log has a different shape, texture, and story adding uniqueness and a history to each piece. This natural individuality is contrasted by the simple, yet industrial elements of safety orange tube, orange upholstery and smoky copper tinted mirrors.

Inspiration for the concept came from continuously finding beautiful pieces of unused logs lying around the neighborhoods surrounding the studio here in Venice, CA. The first run of furniture used redwood for the tables and chairs, and White Oak for the lights, however, there is such a variety of species available around the Los Angeles area that future generations will constantly be changing species. The furniture was originally utilized in A. Kinney Court, one of Ilan Dei Studio’s recent interior design projects.

Designed by Ilan Dei Studio, A. Kinney Court is described as a “concept fashion boutique and eyewear gallery” on  Abbot Kinney Blvd.  Located just a few blocks away from our design studio and workshop in Venice, CA. The interior was not only designed but completely fabricated and constructed by Ilan Dei Studio (project team: Ilan Dei, Peter Turba and Scott Chamberlain) with the intention of dynamically displaying the eyewear and other products.

The design intention takes cues from a variety of inspirations, ranging from the Eames bent plywood processes and skateboard construction to the sand dune formations and ocean waves seen along the neighboring coast.
