PHOTOGRAPHIC WOOD TRANSFERS
Posted By Jill Fehrenbacher On May 15, 2005 @ 11:23 pm In Design,Green Furniture,San Francisco | No Comments
At ICFF , design company OHIO  was showing something innovative: photographic transfers onto wood. The table shown above has a very subtle photographic transfer on the top. At first glance it just looks like a pattern in the wood, but upon closer observation it becomes apparent that it is an image of two people sitting and talking. I have never seen anything like this before, and was quite impressed with the result. Somehow I never imagined photographic transfers would look so nice on wood. You can actually see the wood grain through the stain. I think the success may have something to do with the designer’s choice of image and colors.
Finally, OHIO  also does reclaimed-wood furniture, such as these recycled timber blocks. The company is based in San Francisco ? my home town. Bay Area represent! San Francisco peeps, next time you are walking around Fillmore St., have a wander into this shop and check out the wares.
