Zagreb-based designer Hrvoje Vulama created “Life”, an original chest of drawers developed from a centuries-old oak tree. The majority of treatment was reduced to manual labor, as the designer hand-treated all the twists and curves of the wood in order to achieve a smooth finish. Compounds at the corners cabinets are hand-cut and processed in “dovetails” for strength and durability, but also as a statement highlighting the traditional blend. The chest is coated with a mixture of beeswax, linseed, and Tung oil. The contrast of the piece in dark and light, straight and curved; as in life, nothing is ever completely black nor completely white – this is a beautiful diversity!
