Palette Table

The Palette Table utilizes the staining process of rust and celebrates its painterly qualities. The linear steel profiles that make up the tabletop are held in place by a concrete base. When the Table is exposed to rain, the rust colours the water and drips down the concrete canvas in a striped pattern. As the Palette Table continues to weather the stripes are reinforced, responding to its environment with its own natural decoration.

Twofold Light

The Twofold Light explores the ancient art of paper folding using Tyvek, a synthetic sheet material. Unlike paper, which becomes more opaque when scored for folding, Tyvek becomes more transparent as its fibres are pressed together. The scoring technique used to create the crisp geometric form of the Twofold Light is repeated to cover every surface of the lamp, resulting in a mesmerizing luminescent pattern.

Woven Fan

The Woven Fan was developed for Basketclub with materials supplied by Dedon. The open knotting technique takes advantage of the material's unique properties to create a playful form.

Vault Stool

The Vault Stool is a lightweight, woven carbon fibre stool. Traditional techniques and modern materials meet in its unique appearance. The Stool’s structure is reinforced by the curved edges which are reminiscent of vaulted arches found in architecture.
