Geoffrey Young: Design Folio Incubator Award

Anna Kidman - Thursday, February 02, 2012


A graduate of UCOL, Geoffrey Young's ambition is to make a living designing and making fine custom made furniture. This piece, titled 'Converge bench' is inspired by a Polynesian kite. Its converging lines all help to form the entire structure of the bench, with the saying 'a sum of all parts' ringing true. The seat of the bench is compiled of various pieces of Austrian black wood that all piece together like a carefully constructed jigsaw puzzle. Because the pieces can be removed, it can be packed relatively flat for ease of transport. Its curved base lends a soft aesthetic to the overall silhouette.
