In the Pier Pressure Panel, layers of vibrant color are naturally eroded by sand and sea to create a lasting impression. This solid wood piece of art preserves and celebrates the rugged beauty of fishing boats from the shores of Southeast Asia.
The Pier Pressure Panel is a collaboration between humans and nature. Planks of sustainable Indonesian teak are first crafted into sturdy fishing boats, and their owners decorate them in brilliant colors over years of use.
The elements have their way, wearing down the paint into chance patterns of bright and dark. When the time comes for the boats to retire, we reclaim their valuable wood and transform it into upscale eco-friendly décor.
Each Pier Pressure Panel is one-of-a-kind, built by hand in our local workshops. Rectangular segments are assembled in an offset pattern, joined and framed by contrasting unpainted wood. The finish is then protected with an organic water-based sealant.
