“Furniture is often used as a container for things, leaving the interior undiscovered” quotes Brendan Jurich – Creator of ‘Interior Credenza’. “The interior credenza is designed to engage the observer and generate a contemplative state.”
We talk with Brendan after the piece was announced a winner of the famous Bronze A’ Design Award in Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design Category, which is chosen by the trans-national judging committee of the A’ Design Awards & Competitions.
The business, simply Brendan Jurich, has been creating furniture and commission pieces for a number of years.
“I’m really interested in making furniture that is informed by geometry, stimulates curiosity and engages the observer.” He says. ” The credenza was derived from a desire to intertwine the interior and exterior, inviting contemplation. I have a deep respect for the craft of woodwork and try to instil a strong narrative with each piece. Each project evolves poetically through reasoning, restraint and material honesty. With the credenza, I loved the idea merging Australian and American hardwoods. Vic ash was an immediate choice as it was readily available quarter sawn in long, straight lengths. I had a lot of re-sawing to do for the components that made up the interior of the credenza, and the ash machined and handled beautifully. The warm hues of the timber perfectly complimented the richness and depth of the walnut.”
