In one of the many recessions, whenever I went to London I would assess the state of that economy by counting the cranes visible from Waterloo Bridge. They also struck me as majestic objects and I couldn’t help but run with their shape and translate it into the canti-II table, which I hope captures the precarious and magic danger of their appearance. These tables, like the cranes, come in various lengths, widths and heights, with or without grooves.
A word on grooves: they really are very cool, they demonstrate that wood is beautiful all the way through and from every angle. I originally started to do this to a few chosen surfaces because I wanted to imbue the surface with a texture that emphasised the preciousness that I see in timber by drawing attention to it in a novel and transforming way, but at the same time ensuring that it is usable. You can still see the ‘shadow’ of the original grain pattern beneath and amongst the groove, you can stand anything larger than the 14mm between the groove’s apexes and if you are worried about dusting, use the soft circular brush attachment to your hoover, it works a treat.
Made from olive ash: 2250mm wide x 325mm deep x 800mm high: attaches to the wall
