Untitled (after W.B)


This piece is based on the techniques I learnt through working for the artist Wim Botha. This is the first bench I have manufactured, where I focused on creating a product that presents the love I have for his work and also the passion I have for working with timber. I've had the privilege of assisting Wim during the past 3 and a half years and I'm inspired by him and his body of work. The construction techniques employed in the creation of this bench have been developed and tailored over years, I wanted to represent this within this particular piece.

Each timber component is hand machined and fitted with careful consideration to present the "energy" or "movement" of the piece. The main source starts with intricate timber joints which creates a cluster of sharp bevelled angles. This cluster or source (origin), starts to breakdown into lines and facets, spreading through the length of the bench.

Meeting the end of the piece, the angles are aligned and placed accordingly to form a controlled point, bringing the piece to completion.

The bench is fabricated from a 3m long, 5mm thick electo-galvanised mild steel top, 4.5mm stainless steel legs with a durable ferro-grade black powder coat, custom black patina stainless steel fittings, with in-house manufactured custom cladded timber elements and finally finished in a durable satin clear lacquer.
