INNATE DESK - JON GOULDER
This handsome desk is a new addition to the distinctive Innate collection of Australian-made furniture. It embodies a sense of refinement in its lean, geometric form and the materials used. Characterised by a pared-back aesthetic and understated elegance it is also, not least, imbued with a quintessential Australian sensibility.
The design aesthetic of the entire collection is informed by the shared ethos of designer and producer to allow the materials to speak in their natural and simplest states. The resulting pieces possess an inherent design integrity that is underpinned by honest construction.
The Innate Desk is rendered in solid timber, such as Oak, Blackwood, or Walnut, that is paired with a base of blackened steel - referred to as "Night" - or patinated brass - called "Day" - for the trims and base.
The rest of the collection comprises a Console, several types of Side and Coffee Tables, followed by the Dining Table, Bedside Table and this Desk.
Desk: W 1600 x D 750 x H 750 mm
MATERIALS / FINISHES
Structure available in:
- solid Tasmanian Oak, natural finish
- solid Tasmanian Blackwood, natural or pickled finish*
- solid American Oak, natural finish
- solid American Walnut, natural finish
Base & Handles:
- Steel with black powder-coating ("Night")
- Brass with electroplated 'bronze' finish ("Day")
*Note: producing the unusual ‘pickled’ finish involves a process of steeping steel wool in vinegar, and then rubbing the surface of the piece with it; resulting in each timber reacting differently, to typically produce a contrasting effect of deep blacks with smoky taupes.
