oblique 01, a room divider that knows exactly how to divide every space, without losing the sense of spaciousness. Inspired by Le Corbusier's Tower of Shadows, the oblique subdivisions make this object unique and recognizable. The vertical oblique elements guarantee interesting views and privacy, surprising along each view. Proper lighting will cast light and shadow plays on the trophies that you will proudly display in this cabinet. A modular construction which is easily extendable, built with sustainable materials and fine details, this timeless design shows what barh stands for. Design at first sight.
Le Corbusier, City of Chandigarh
It was in the Indian city, Chandigarh, that barh found inspiration for the design of oblique 01. French architect Le Corbusier was in the lead of the design of this remarkable city. The Tower of Shadows, one of many architectural gems in this cultural paradise, is characterized by its open structure and oblique parts. The construction offers a unique play of light, see-throughs and shadows, something we recognize in oblique 01 as well.
oblique 01 is constructed in individual modules made out of warm black colored massive American ash wood. The modules are positioned between one another by use of a marble frame placed in between the modules. This results in a fine nature stone line detail that shows up between the horizontal modules. The marble has both an esthetical and functional value to the object. oblique 01 makes use of soft green marble, Vert De Rajastan. Obviously other marble families can be used as well.
The room divider is modular because it is constructed out of 3 different horizontal elements which can be used separately or together, in any possible combination. oblique 01 can be built with one, two or three modules, always with a different functionality and see-though as a result. The modules have been designed in such a way that more modules can be added vertically or horizontally without losing sense of unity and purpose.
