Where nature meets design: look inside WDSTCK gallery

About WDSTCK gallery by Ethnic Chic

Hidden in a forest close to Amsterdam, this gallery is the purist we’ve ever been to and curiosity objects were all around. Nature was their source to create these beautiful and pure furniture design pieces. A real journey for everybody who loves the outdoors and design. Here’s an after-impression of our visit.

Inside WDSTCK Gallery

Refined designs, traditional craftsmanship and great materials. Each object has a personal story, which you can even almost smell. Welcome to the wonders of nature. WDSTCK is a must-visit if you’re seeking for unique, outspoken objects that show natural purity in its own way (only visits on appointment).

Natural Imperfection

In a research for a woodworking method to create an intense blackness, WDSTCK discovered the ancient method from Japan called Shou Sugi Ban. This intensive and time- consuming technique burns away the soft parts of the wood and reveals the beautiful and muscular forms of the branches. Instead of adding an extra layer of lacquer, the inner structures of the wood are unveiled. As an additional advantage the wood is well preserved from weather, rot and insects with a non-toxic method. Resulting in beautiful natural imperfection.

The story of freedom

The founders of WDSTCK, designer Jesse Sanderson & garden architect Wim Verzantvoort, are driven by the dream of a “fair and honest artistic revolution in the commercial creative industry”. During the Woodstock festival in the late ‘60s, a group of young people from different backgrounds created a counter- culture dreaming of a peaceful and free world. This story is what you can find back at the gallery’s art and design pieces. A raw, organic state of mind.

A short trip to the outdoors can do a lot of good, we left the gallery re-energised and hopefully you will feel the same.
