This desk was inspired by the many nuts and bolts used to assemble Meccano toys and structures. Just as you assemble an idea out of pre-cut pieces and components, we started this idea to be flexible and adaptable. The contrast in wood and metal was selected to celebrate the warmth of the wood.
Selecting wood to have live edges, and some cracks, ads character to the piece. From the outset the ida was to create as much as possible as handmade pieces. However, the metal plates are designed and cut by Laser cutting machines for precision.
Nothing here is mass produced Built to last Exclusive and for the selected few who wants something different.
Red River Gum
Eucalyptus Camaldulensis, Murray Red Gum, Rooibloekom
Officially an invasive specie that must be eradicated in most areas of South Africa. Uses excessive water. Mostly used for exterior finishes, decking, construction, our team gave it a new status in this fine furniture piece.
From Peliplage (Klipfontein farm Swellendam), this river specie has a dark red colour which we enhanced using a hard wax finish.
The Facts and more
The design is influenced by large industrial buildings, roof trusses and accentuated with some steampunk and industrial style design elements. Naturally the steampunk version can be made as well.
The top is made from 50mm square solid wood laminated pieces, held together with industrial strength steel bars.
The top is also supported with a steel brace to ensure minimum movement and warping.
The minimalistic drawers were included as the client indicated a need for just some small storage space.
