Circus Bookshelfaims to utilise and express the unique
properties of one of the most intriguing geometric forms in mathematics - the
circle. A circle exhibits infinite planes of reflection
and rotation symmetry about the origin, offering untapped flexibility when it
comes to design. This unique property is exploited in Circus Bookshelf through the
intersection of four sets of concentric circles.
The circles that form the
piece fit within one another, minimising waste in construction and allowing for
the piece to dismantle and fit within the largest circle. Circus Bookshelf is also
designed to be orientated in two ways giving the user an option of either a
tall and narrow or short and long bookcase.
Tall: 1500mm L x 270mm W x 2200mm H
Long: 2200mm L x 270mm W x 1600mm H
Chair exploits the potential offered by high performance fibre reinforced
concrete to create a piece of furniture unlike any other. At just 22mm thick,
Ribbon Chair utilises the tremendous strength offered by concrete of this type
to produce a thin and elegant form, in contrast to what one expects to see from
concrete. A distinctive piece in any environment.
Material: Fibre reinforced concrete
Dimensions: 1540mm L x 800mm H x 450mm W
Stressed Storage stems from a desire to explore the
stress and anxiety that is becoming increasingly prominent in our lives.
Expressed in the form of mechanical stress, the components of Stressed Storage are subjected
to high levels of tension and compression. The circular components are openable
storage units held firmly in place by tensioned ropes.
Stressed Storage is an experimental piece with the
potential to translate to a spectacular wall feature or room divider within a
home, retail space or bar/restaurant.
