Two more pieces of typographic furniture by Matt Innes. The curvaceous ampersand table [top] was inspired by the shapes of Herb Lubalin (and Tom Carnase). It features legs that mimic surfboard fins that are connected with a precision-fit slot and tab technique. No nails or screws.
The Japanese kanji inspired side tables [bottom] make use of the “load-bearing, structural forms” of the script. They can be read & used horizontally or as a vertical stack. They are slightly adjusted from the traditional forms to create a more stable structure. Made in collaboration with Saori Kajiwara
Higashi (東 – east) and nishi (西 – west) also form the compound word tozai (東西), meaning the wider world
