Hand Pressed Veneer Returns With the Noah Sideboard

Hand Pressed Veneer Returns With the Noah Sideboard

The Jardan collection encompasses all forms of furniture and accessories, designed for everyday living in the relaxed style that’s typical of contemporary Australian life.

Jardan’s extensive furniture collection is always growing, with each and every piece designed and produced possessing its own unique story to tell. The Noah Sideboard is a recent addition to the Jardan range, as part of the larger Apartment Collection. Its sharp, sleek lines and angular base make it eye-catching, and the design speaks to Jardan’s passion for traditional craftsmanship and contemporary manufacture.

Made from hand pressed veneer board with individually cast solid brass handles, Noah combines state-of-the-art manufacturing with traditional hand-pressing veneer techniques. In creating this piece, the Jardan Lab was particularly inspired by intricate weaving techniques and, with Noah, looked to achieve this aesthetic using modern construction methods.

Jardan - Noah Bedside Sideboard | Habitus Living

Noah was designed to be produced on Jardan’s in-factory CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machine which enables every unit to be made with exact precision. In their initial design developments, the Jardan Lab intended the entire piece to be cut on Jardan’s flatbed CNC, but found that doing so would prevent the veneer grain from perfectly matching.

As such, the production process was tweaked to allow the door and drawer fronts to be hand-pressed, which was a lucky decision resulting in the veneers appearing to flow into one another, providing a beautiful detail and a lovely twist to this modern, Australian designed sideboard.
