Beating Wings, marks a conscious move into a more sculptural line of work for designer-maker David, fusing geometry with organic forms. This limited edition coffee table is the first piece in the new Strata series, which is based on using multiple layers to create a sense of movement and the handmade table conjures up different images with every angle it’s viewed from. The idea was inspired by the beating of a dragonfly’s wings and the shape comes from breaking down the phases of motion during the wing cycle. Just under one hundred pieces of solid timber are carefully jointed together to create this collectable piece.
David commented, “This piece has had me excited and tense in equal amounts over the last few months. It was a complex exercise in making but the results were very rewarding”. The design can also me made as a dining table as well as in other sizes and timbers.
