As a child Ash Allen furniture designer used to put glass marbles in the fire and then quickly dunk them in water to watch them shatter within. He applied this same process to recycled champagne bottles. Thicker than standard wine and beer bottles, these bottles hold together well after cracking. A cylindrical sleeve made from recycled cork crumb, completes the pendant light.Each uniquely different, these pendant lights are ideal for a bar or restaurant setting especially if your looking for recycled eco content. I just LOVE these lamps!
This outdoor stool, ideal for a back patio or garden setting, was inspired by two elements from a Japanese rock garden. A naturally worn “skipping” stone, and the sharp, vertical stems of bamboo. The lightweight, Tasmanian Oak dowel base is not only strong through its triangular structure. The heavy cast “stone” seat incorporates recycled rubber crumb for texture and toughness. Its solidity, roughness and weight contrast with the light, crisp, airiness of the base. A different aspect from every direction, this asymmetric piece has tension between the elements, creating maximum visual impact with minimal environmental footprint. The seats are available in custom red, blue, grey and white colours, with or without rubber. Matching bar stool, side table and coffee table are also available on request.
