Description

The Wood Quilt is a unique art piece designed for the modern home. Inspired by the texture and repetition of a traditional quilt, this dramatic, wall-mounted system makes any wall a centrepiece. Each 14” x 14” tile is comprised of 16 cedar wedges, angled in different directions creating a hypnotic visual display.The wedges create texture and depth through shadows and highlights, showcasing the beautiful grain of the red cedar. We have purposefully oriented each wedge to ensure that when multiple tiles are grouped together, there will not be any mirrored interfaces between the tiles. This allows the visual groupings to be perceived unconsciously, which makes for a more seamless display.

A single tile makes a beautiful statement, as does a grouping of multiple tiles to create a textured wall. The TO DO installation provides conceptual explorations of the tiles presented in extraordinary ways, for your inspiration. Straightforward mounting hardware is included for easy installation.

The domestic red cedar wedges are mounted onto a birch plywood backing. The satin finish protects the wood while allowing the tiles to look and feel as natural as possible.
