Solid oak blocks are cut, hewn, laminated, machined, and polished to create elemental forms derived from vertebrates. Resembling a spinal column in repose, these blocks stack, located by polished spheres, to bear the weight of the table’s disc-shaped upper surface.
Finely machined bearings permit the tabletop’s fluid, zoomorphic movement, remaking the mechanics which guide the head. Reclining, crouched patiently beside the sofa, the attendant slumbers until called into service.
In silent homage to the Titan who propped up the globe, Atlas accepts the daily burdens of domestic life - dutifully offering up surfaces to live with, lie with, kneel at, and place objects upon.
Beauty, clarity of idea and intelligent material selection would be the best way of describing my approach to design. I am constantly searching for fresh ideas and answers to design problems. An obsessive passion for design as a discipline drives me in this search. I create objects to enrich your life, through consideration for your needs, wants and desires. Well designed objects and spaces make you feel more comfortable and happy doing the things you have to do, want to do or both. Design makes everything easier, faster, more efficient and more intuitive.
