Description

Delicate organic shapes define this table, which is made using unique, non-traditional methods. There are no straight lines present.  The technical challenges in making a traditional material (wood) appear so organic and lively are numerous.  Two inch thick hardwood must be steam bent then shaped into curved, tapered cylindrical “tusks” using a variety of hand techniques.  Each “tusk” forms a leg, and two legs are then joined together to add structural integrity to the overall piece.  This Tusk console table certainly demands the highest level of technical ability to produce such a seamless and natural outcome.

The high end processes continue, such as the mould making and laminating techniques required to make the decorative, wave-like, secondary top.

Tusk shows a total disregard for traditional rules yet somehow manages to integrate a range of age-old techniques in a very modernist and contemporary manner.  The design aesthetic is paramount and focusses on minimalism and a visual lightness.  Yet it has to fit within an overall, organic silhouette which suggests movement and flexibility.

NB: The images shown are of a Tusk console table made using solid English sycamore and fiddleback sycamore veneer on the wave structure.  Sycamore is a wonderful steam bending timber and has a nice tight grain to facilitate the extensive hand shaping required after the steam bending has cured and stabilised.  Other timbers can be utilised based on your preferences and requirements.  Contact us for further details.

Sustainability

Sustainability is our essence, not just a tag line.
Good Design is sustainable. Minimal materials, cleverly put together, avoiding unnecessary production and waste. Well crafted designs that last a long time, because if you buy cheap you pay twice, and so does the environment.

Sustainability is about health, avoiding bad chemicals, using non-toxic materials.  Choice of materials is important. We prefer natural fibres in our fabrics. Wools, cottons, linens, and leather.  Timber is a great choice for sustainable outcomes. Forests are good for our environment, and timber production has many eco-benefits. We prefer timbers that are properly harvested using sustainable forestry practices, and timbers that last. We use glass, or metal when that’s what the item needs to be beautiful, or functional, or to last a long time. That’s part of a sustainable outcome too.
