cheungvogl: boat timber installation at aesop, hong kong

Naturally aged timber from chinese boats are reconfigured for an installation at the aesop shop located in lane crawford, hong kong by chinese/german architecture firm cheungvogl. the planks, left in their original state, are made into two floating cabinets.
although the functions and general shapes of the units are set, the actual form and detail is determined by the sizes and general imperfections found in the material itself. the design is a representation of time, as the history of the boat planks are visible
through the warn quality of the wood. the natural decay of the installation is made more prominent by its modern, clean and controlled surroundings.
