Who says tattoos are only for the skin and body? This form of art in its intricate designs and patterns has made its way into the design world. The Yakuzza Furniture series by Reddish Design Studio in Israel has captured the attention of the public. It even won the Interior Innovation Award in 2006 at Imm Cologne which is an international furniture trade show held every January at Cologne, Germany.
The Yakuzza series treats wood like a human body making it the perfect vessel for images just like a tattoo. Unlike handmade designs of ink on humans, designs on each piece of furniture are imprinted by digital printing making it possible to put several layers of art on top of each other.
Digital printing also enables each piece to be personalized. A unique outcome is then achieved from each piece created. The Yakuza series would look great as accent pieces in any interior or space.
