OUTSIDE THE BOX
I designed Outside the Box, a collection of ash and oak furniture, to explore that moment when a fluid form solidifies. Each frozen moment is a unique part of each furniture’s function. Whether that be an ergonomic seat shape or a structural leg. To achieve the look of liquid wood I worked closely with craftspeople to merge CNC machining with traditional carpentry techniques. Next step I’m eager to explore further that moment when the dynamic freezes and takes on a rigid shape.
