Cork bedside shelves 2008
Holland Park, London
European Oak, Birch Plywood, Stainless steel & Cork

Bedside tables made from laminated European Oak and with a top made from natural cork block. I think Cork is beautiful in its natural state like this, it has an amazing figure to it that looks like a piece of burled wood and it's warm, soft and naturally waterproof. Technically and aesthetically i'm pleased with the shape of the bracket and not for the first time the work of Alvar Aalto was an important inspiration for me.
