Fall 2018 - current
I enjoy creating contemporary forms with classical proportions and assembly techniques. Creating furniture is an essential part of my design career. It gives me the chance to participate in the entire design process. Craft, subdued presence and a logical construction drive my designs.
This dining-room table bench that comfortably sits 3. It’s made of baltic birch plywood and utilizes 316 stainless steel hardware to hold it all together. I then milled steel carriage bolts to be flush with the surface of the bench and gave them a spiraled finish. Baltic is flat-packable and can be assembled in 5 minutes with the aid of a socket wrench. No wobble. No creeks or sounds. Just a surface to sit on 19.35 inches off the ground.
This is a white oak stool with walnut plugs.
This piece is flat-packable in three parts and assembled using 2 bolts. It’s been coated with a black enamel - something I did one more time and probably never again. I learned from this weekend build that it’s best to use an ebony stain so the coloring is one with the wood, rather than a coat on the surface.
With small sized rooms in cities, people benefit from versatile furniture. I found that without a nightstand I was placing my pocket items on the floor, and there really isn’t enough room for a desk in my room. I created a bed-side table to be both. With a cherry top and removable plywood legs with the help of velcro, I can disassemble and send home.
There is a very high chance this is being worked on as you read this sentence. Made of Walnut this bench will give subtle support to the users posture. It’s been a thrill to make.
