NTN will release product collections bi-annually. Each collection will feature seemingly disparate products, connected through design. We are interested in how design can achieve this, and how this approach makes traditional product categories less relevant.
Collection 01 features honest materials and simple form. Each product features one inherently complex component, allowing the other elements to be entirely simplified. This is true for the pieces shown here as well as the G1 Glasses and W1 Watch shown in separate case studies.
The Dowel Chair
The Dowel Chair is a modern take on the classic windsor chair. Constructed from solid bleached irish sycamore the seat back consists of sixteen spindles with a removable fabric cover. On the underside the legs are blended into the seat.
The Hammock Table
The Hammock Table is a low coffee table defined by a suspended fabric shelf. The shelf is kept in tension by rope connecting to aluminium leg mounts. The solid table top is of bleached Irish sycamore which is blended into the round legs.
The Waterford Lamp
This pendant lamp consists of a thick, clear glass shade hand blown in Waterford, Ireland. A machined aluminium hanger suspends the shade from the grey braided cable. We first created a tool for blowing the glass out of Beech. This tool was turned in our workshop and then sent to Waterford for production.
