Introducing handcrafted architectural furniture from Jan Janssen Werken. After graduating in 2008 as an architect at the Delft University of Technology, the largest and oldest Dutch public technical university, Jan Janssen decided to hone his design skills with his handcrafted line of furniture Jan Janssen Werken.
Modestnobility had the privilege to meet the designer in his studio and shoot the process of his work. Creating each piece by hand with a sand casting process resulting in three dimensional pieces in the form of stools and other furniture from aluminum, bronze or iron.
Sand casting is one of the earliest and oldest forms of casting, producing metal components with a rough sand-like texture, often with a crude degree of accuracy, and therefore requires various finishing techniques to improve the surface finish. Such techniques include grinding, filing, hammer and shot peening, polishing and plating.
