The Double Helix Table



Dimensions: 82cm x 50cm

This table was commissioned as a gift for one of the scientists who was part of the team at the University of Cambridge that discovered the three dimensional double helix structure of DNA in the 1950s.

‘A furniture maker’s life is full of repetition. I’ve tried to make a virtue of this “problem” by emphasising rather than resisting it. My work is therefore often composed of multiple and layered components. Over the years, these works have become ever-more complex, involving more components, shaped in increasingly complex ways.’
