The 725 Table


Fumed oak

Dimensions: 89cm x 40cm

The 725 Table can be compared to seeds or pods or sheaves of grass. It is named for the number of individual pieces of wood that had to be shaped, sanded, sanded again, and tenoned into place. It is then fumed in ammonia to give the wood its rich, dark hue.

‘So many things in nature grow in a spiral. The mediaeval Italian mathematician, Fibonacci, gave us the Fibonacci sequence of numbers, which yield what is known as the Golden Ratio. This ratio describes every spiral that we find in nature, from nautilus shells and pinecones, to spiral galaxies. The exploration of the possibilities yielded by such mathematical sequences is often reflected in my work.’
