Drawing inspiration from myriad sources and then juxtaposing may turn out to be disastrous occasionally and at other times, the results are beautiful. Leaf Table by John Lonsdale definitely falls under the latter category. The form of this table is just striking. It is inspired by a boat, butterfly and leaf. Like a boat, the table is divided into wedges that serve as receptacles for ‘found objects.’ Laminated hardwoods are the materials behind this creation. The various parts are first pressed and bent into shape, then these are milled with computer driven machines. The young designer has delivered a table that is a great tribute to his craftsmanship and vision. Keep an eye out for him.
