Description: Oeuffice explores the world of Middle Eastern architecture and ornamental structures. Collaborating with a Lebanese craftsman specialized in wood inlay, Oeuffice has created a system of independent boxes that stack together forming a monumental tower fitted for the domestic landscape. The form evokes a simplification of traditional Muquarnas found in Middle Eastern architecture, and the inlaid ornamentation
renders a new study of scale and an unexpected shift in direction of traditional pattern standards.
