This piece was inspired by a client I met at The Celebration Of Craftsmanship & Design Exhibition ( at Cheltenham ) who had a passion for 1950â€™s furniture. He wanted a desk with a distinct â€˜Toby Howesâ€™ look that combined a light, suspended-in-air feel with the utilitarianism of the time.
What I came up with contrasts light and dark, straight lines and curves, intricate construction with simple style and luxurious materials with sparse design. I love the dichotomy of this piece!
