The terms credenza, sideboard, buffet, server and even console are used interchangeably nowadays by both furniture makers and shops. The distinctions between these pieces which were once defining are now mere formalities, often overlooked. Still, some details are still there. The Odessa cabinet is closer to being a sideboard than to anything else. It has elegant, sharp, tapered lines and polished bronze top and sides.
Kaspar Hamacher is a Belgian designer who uses wooden logs to create unique stools. The method used to get the desired result is rather unusual. The stools are created by setting a log on fire. The burnt away sections shape the log until it finally starts to look like a stool. The bark is also stripped from the log and the result is a clean and artistic form. The project is called Ausgebrannt which means “burnt out” in German.
The term “credenza” seems like a pretty pretentious word, another name for what we commonly know as a sideboard, a buffet or a server. But why do we even have so many names for what seems to be one and the same thing? Even though the similarities are very numerous, there are also small details that distinguish each of these furniture pieces from the other similar options. Also, they’ve each come a long way since they were first invented and a lot of changes occurred over time.
