Workstation for an Apartment
I have been designing and building furniture since I was a teenager. This piece was designed as a workstation more suitable for a domestic setting. It is made from two materials: solid brass and Honduran mahogany. Its constructional logic is similarly straightforward, each brass upright connecting through the mahogany to the piece below, one after the next, and working in compression until it reaches the top. The top section is actually two pieces, a smaller solid rod moving within an exterior tubing, which allows for up to one foot of adjustment, and acts as a tension rod, thereby making the slender system rigid in tension as a completed assembly.

I built this piece at my father’s wood and metal studio using ‘analog’ woodworking tools and machinery and a metal lathe.
