A continuous and luxurious courtyard that is not split up in any way. Implying there are no private gardens. An open parkland consisting of just grass, pavement, and scattered trees. The pavement is an intensive network of paths made of two pentagonal concrete paving stones in three shades of grey were laid down in a random fashion The meshes of the net consist out of grass planted with scattered groups of Robinia and daffodils. The quarter forms a distinct stepping stone in the connection between Amsterdam’s city centre and the new neighborhoods in the eastern harbor area, but above all, offers an unique dwelling to its residents.
A very interesting piece from conception to birth for designer Thomas Feichtner. Feichtner worked with reknown producer Eternit AG of Austria whom has collaborated with the legendary Le Corbusier and Willy Guhl. The conception of the Basso Shelf system began with exploration and sustainability of fibre cement and its journey as a material from then to now. It is considered one of the most environmentally friendly materials and is what composes the form of this tripartite, modular shelf system that is connected by wooden pegs. The effect the fibre cement has, due to their cement molds in production, really gives a fabric like quality to material that is hard as a rock. The final finish on the piece is very interesting too because photographically it reads like felt. It begins very industrial in concept and finishes very elegantly. What is also very cool about this piece is the fact that it could be used for multiple functions like a bench with magazine storage below or on casters as a rolling kitchen island… the possibilities are endless since the framework is so flexible!
