Cooking Island
The most essential item of furniture in a modern kitchen is a central island, where you can prep and cook without moving more than a few paces of kitchen.

We made this Island compact and used the idea of mixing found burr oak as the key feature with its profile lit behind glass. The un-coloured concrete is the same composition as used in garden sculpture and incorporates the colour variations and natural imperfections found in the mix. The glass panels behind the burr panels are hand-cast which blurs impact of the concealed LED lights and help make a texture like captured water, matching the burr oak.

The furniture makers made a huge impact by sourcing the dramatic oak burr. Our vision for the piece begin as a series of wavy edge planks with gaps as cladding. Imagine looking across a field at night and seeing an old barn with gaps between the boards and light peeping through. The mystery of what lies behind and the darkness around provides one with both a comforting feeling and desire to know more. We tried to capture that quality in this design.
