Planetary Desk

The signature piece behind Harrogate Furniture. This Physics-inspired writing desk comprised of figured oak and a planetary gear ramping system supported by a brass stretcher. 

 

The desk mechanism was a challenge I set myself to incorporate an element of 'me' into a fun and functional desk.  Whether it be to write your thesis, design furniture or just to play, the ramp symbolised my desire to bring something different to the furniture game.

A sunrise veneered jewellery box that developed from a brief of one line; somewhere to hang a necklace with an 18 inch chain.

The height required to accommodate the necklaces determined the dimensions, and the addition of curves helped soften the generous proportions of the box. 

Inside, the lid is gilded with differing shades of gold, directly mirroring the fan on the outside of the lid and held with quadrant hinges. 

The drawers are lined with burgundy baize and the drawer fronts milled from one continuous piece of olive ash with slim hand cut brass pulls to allow the grain to flow from top to bottom.

Just in time

An hourglass-shaped bedside cabinet designed to bring something new to the standard rectangular cabinet.  The curved legs are laminated ash strips shaped into cylinders and teamed with a 100% recycled plastic top and shelf.

 

The name twins the shape with our need to promote recycling and ethical material choices.
