Best Furniture Designs: The Special Tree Sideboard by JSB
An incredibly exotic sideboard, The Special Tree is one of the best furniture designsof the Beyond Memory Collection from Insidherland by JSB.
It’s part of a series representing the four seasons, this piece embodying summer and all that goes with it. Three types of exotic roots are featured in their natural colors with a gleaming, high-gloss finish. The interior of the sideboard is satinwood, the base and trunks made of oxidized brushed brass.
. The piece has a signature stamp on one trunk and look closely inside the cabinet (above) – the glass shelves are supported by wavy branches (also brass). It’s not only the perfect piece of furniture for a modern dining area, but also a stand-alone piece of art. The wood veneer patterns are almost mystical and certainly mesmerizing. And it’s got tons of storage.
Born in Oporto, Joana Santos Barbosa graduated in Architecture at the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Oporto in 2006, later deepening her knowledge in Interior Design at St. Martin’s School of Arts and Design in London. Alongside with Architecture, the passion for the Detail motivated her to create her own exclusive furniture design.
Joana soon saw her talent recognized, being considered as one of the Top 10 Contemporary Designers from Portugal. Earning her place in the international design scene, she was invited to exhibit at the XX Triennale International Exhibition in Milan and her work can be regularly seen in the most prestigious design and decoration events in London, Paris and Milan.
Having a refined intuition and a particular way of feeling, Joana has a vein of attachment to the Land and a devotion to the senses. Her creative path is a mirror of her personality and results from the profound connections she early developed with the natural world, the travels that opened her eyes to other cultures and her progress in classical music and dance alongside with her training in architecture. Feeling more comfortable in the field of imagination, she always knew that her life would be surrounded by art.
