Orientation expresses the capacity of an acoustic sheet to function in furniture applications. In this piece, two sheets of EchoPanel® are bent to form large ‘V’ sections which are then fixed to the underside of the oak top. To resolve the problem of joining these dissimilar materials, inspiration was taken from traditional methods of furniture construction and bespoke timber fasteners were created.
Orientation is a coffee table that marries two materials and presents a contemporary object informed by traditional craft techniques.
