Furniture design is more than just focusing only on functionality. Today, furniture designers are combining functionality and aesthetic elements to craft practical furnishings that also stylish ornaments. And when it comes to woodwork design, a piece doesn’t have to be seriously elegant. A whimsical approach to furniture design can be as appealing as those with refined styles. And just like any form of art, a woodworker can bring his imagination to life through wood, just as a painter does through painting.
If you’re not convinced that wood could make an awesome work of art then let Henk Verhoeff dispel your doubts. Henk is from Auckland, New Zealand and he has been working as a cabinet maker for over 50 years. Although he’s already retired from his job, his love for the craft never diminished. He still spent most of his time making cabinets and other wooden furnishings as a hobby. But this time, he is able to craft the dressers using his own design and style.
Unlike conventional cabinets, Henk’s creations are truly remarkable. The dressers may look like they’re damaged but that’s the concept behind it all. Disproportionate structure with big cracks, one might think that his products are about to fall apart. But each unique-looking dresser is completely functional and is intricately designed to trick your mind. Indeed, these unique pieces are something we don’t see in any shop. If anything, these furniture pieces look like they came straight out of a Disney movie.
