AMBOINA COLLECTION 0019

 

Amboina explores South Moluccan culture, 

by means of a pattern in marquetry. The 

pattern refers to different cultural aspects 

such as geography, semiotics, community, 

flora, fauna, history and politics. These

are represented by abstracted symbols.

Their importance is indicated by their position and scale within the iconography of the patterns.

 

The set of tables, with the pattern decorating 

the tabletops, take a lead from Art Decoas 

modern reinterpretation of traditional marquetry craft. The use of distinct materials, such as wood, marble and brass, add to the cultural values represented in the pattern.
