Sandpaper Tray

Baas & Kleinbloesem together with Vij5

“Thomas & Anne designed this tray based on a technique Thomas used for his graduation project. They wanted to create a useful object able to show this honest and pure technique. The tray is produced by a combination of dedicated handwork and an industrial finishing process. We love the fact that the tray looks different from every angle, where the light reflects differently in the grains of the sanded surfaces.”

For the ‘Sandpaper Tray’ Thomas and Anne wanted to create a useful object able to show a honest and pure technique Thomas used earlier for his graduation project.

The aluminium is sanded by hand in different directions to create a balanced graphical pattern. On some parts the directions of the ‘fields’ intersect. After the sanding the tray is given its shape and is being anodised to give it a strong top layer, using a beautiful champagne colour finish.
