This sideboard in solid wood, designed for a traditional crafts workshop, of a Bosnian company, Rukotvorine, (engl. Handcrafts), exploits the transformation potential of a tradition and craftsmenship in producing authentic Bosnian hand-carved furniture into products of modern design. The inspiration for this product was found in nature and turned into an abstract form through design, with a comeback of „arts and craft.“ Memory, the central topic of this work, through design defines the product's origin and its unique identity in the transformation of old into new and traditional into modern. Our message and the objective is the following: the tradition of handcrafts and modern design need to be bridged into a dialogue of healthy coexistence.
