Scorched version of ‘Shake’ by Sebastian Cox for The New Craftsmen


Scorched Shake Sideboard – £4600

Sebastian Cox’s widely acclaimed range ‘Shake’ made by Benchmark Furniture – has been scorched exclusively for The New Craftsmen.

Each ‘shake’ – a type of shingle commonly used in Japan as architectural cladding – has been cleft (the ancient art of splitting wood along its grain) and delicately hand-scorched – just enough to blacken it without setting it alight! They are assembled on the door frames to give a fantastic texture of charred shakes.

Five teams from design collective Okay Studio caused a stir at Clerkenwell Design Week with their eclectic mix of designs coined ‘Five’ for the American Hardwood Export Council, who have set a precedent with their festival collaborations. Hunting and Narud, Mathias Hahn, Ed SwanLiliana Ovalle, Andrew Haythornwaite and Peter Marigold presented their innovative homewares crafted from five American Hardwood species at the Scin Gallery.

David Venables, Director of AHEC explained “One key aspect of this project for us is promoting and demonstrating the performance of the material. Out of a single set of materials, have come five very different designs and the teams at Okay Studio have risen to that challenge extremely well and I think we have all learnt more about the versatility of the materials as a result.”

Hunting and Narud worked with the complete range of species – American ash, cherry, hard maple, red oak and tulipwood, on their ‘Apex Tables’ – a series of side tables. Black and blue colour stain match the seat on some of range, whilst others are left natural. Glass reveals the quality of the wood on the hardwood cones and is clear as well as smoked.

Tibu bar stool designed by Anderssen & Voll for Magis

Tibu copy 2

The bar stool with gas lift is one of Magis’s most important inventions, introduced with Giovannoni’s Bombo in 1997. Ever since its arrival the brand has set out to reinterpret this category, by spontaneously representing the height-adjustment feature in a new way.  Tibu is the latest design by Anderssen & Voll to add to the collection.

Both the seat and footrest of the Tibu, are connected in a distinctly continuous shape, the base and the trunk are connected as a balancing counterpart. Magis would never have given this shape to a bar stool with a fixed height. The organization of the various parts expresses the possibility of movement.

The stool is monochrome in order to give all the parts of the product equal importance. Scratch-proof steel added to the soft seat  safeguards the purity, geometry and simplicity of its design.
