‘Patterns’ is a dining table that experiments with surface finishing, non-traditional materials and bold forms. The stout copper legs had a former life as commercial water piping and were sourced from scrap metal yards, bearing the hallmarks of time and weather. This introduces an element of distance between the designer and the work and invites chance and self-producing systems to partake in the creation of the table. ‘Patterns’ unashamedly celebrates a diverse material palette and embraces production methods that are technical and controlled as well as guided by chance. The end result is a table that is novel, exuberant and memorable.
Available for shipment or collection from 25 October 2022.
