Side or bedside table with integrated lamp
Wood veneer, Straw
Nel is a side or bedside table with integrated lamp. This piece exploits the genre issue reinterpretating craft techniques and has a human and humoristic character. The lampshade represents men straw hat, typical of the portuguese region of Baixo Minho.
The handles accentuate the humorist intention, because Maria (the other side table) speaks too much and Nel is amazed with her speech. The drawers are lined with illustrated wallpaper with the belongings of the character. Nel can adapt itself to adults and youngsters, can work separate or together with Maria and can be combined in different colors.
Materials: oak wood veneer finished with colorless and white matt varnish. Lampshade is hand-sewn in lacy straw braid. Drawers’ inner coating in non--woven paper with illustrations.
