The crooked house represents a real showcase as it is almost completely transparent. The two little wooden doors in front are made from old chestnut wood, blown glass, original metal ware from the 19th century and a picture. The picture refers to architectural reconstruction processes as it does the one, which is fixed at the bottom in the middle of the columns. The 4 wooden columns from 1820 were transformed into bent legs by applying an old restoration technique, which is normally used for straightening damaged table legs. In this way the restoration process becomes visible.
Hillsideout [antique art design] is a joint project by Andrea Zambelli and Nat Wilms which came to life in 2009 out of a mutual concern and discomfort for the degradation of abandoned sites in the Italian Apennines. Hillsideout expresses the need to transform the state of uselessness but also forgotten stories into practical functionality.View designer’s page
