The principle of Flex was originally conceived in my second year at University; I was given a 500mm x 500mm square of 3mm plywood and tasked to design a fruit bowl. It seemed to me that the simplest way to create a bowl-like form was to hold the material in tension to create a shallow “U” shape.
Flex is held in tension by a slotted frame- work with no need for glue or mechanical fixing. A coloured wood stain brings out the natural beauty of the material and contrasts with the burnt golden laser cut edges.
Currently shortlisted for the Made.com Emerging Talent Award.
