FurnID | Dekka
Dekka is a daybed where two design traditions integrate in one furniture. FurnID has chosen to let the Danish design tradition meet with the Arab and the result is a minimalistic daybed by the name Dekka.
Dekka is a blend between old handwork and industrial processing, between hard and soft, between light and air, between matt and shiny, between decoration and minimalism, between asymmetry and stringency and between aesthetic and function.
The shape is created by an irregular hexagon which can be repeated infinitely and creates a dynamic pattern. The Arab world thinks of symmetry as a divine thing; the sharper symmetry the closer to God. Dekka is a furniture for humans and not for Gods. When people meet nothing is predictable, regular or symmetric. The irregular element stands for all our human flaws and all our human forces.
Dekka is a meeting between two units, a meeting by a line, an axis. One cannot mirror the two cultures that meet in this furniture because they overlap each other and create a beautiful and asymmetrical pattern. Dekka means a seat for more than one person and is a meeting between two units who make a whole, who unify.
Dekka is a manifestation of good old craftsmanship and highly advanced manufacturing. The 150 kilo aluminium frame is made from one massive block of aluminium, milled out on an advanced 5-axis CNC machine. Together with the handmade padding work the daybed obtains a strong combination of the Arab and the Danish design traditions.
