How to convert Google Earth photographs into furniture

Moving waters and reflections are one of the key features of our upcoming Spring/Summer 2019 report (only a few days more before we launch:) but we’d like to introduce you already today to Dutch designer Bart Joachim Van Uden, a graduate of the Eindhoven Design Academy, who is known for playing with decorative top layers on furniture.  For his “Romancing the Stone” furniture series, part of the “Transition III” project, he gathered a virtual collection of rocky landscapes and digitally processed Google Earth photographs that portray landscapes mimicking stone and marble patterns.

The project shows an evolution of the real marble designs we have been observing for the past 4 years leading towards a new perception of blurring lines between real and faux surfaces and materials.
