adrian swinstead: wood benches

‘sycamore arch bench by adrian swinstead (sycamore tree from geddington, northamptonshire, 50mm toughened glass)adrian swinstead is a london based furniture designer that specializes in using seasoned timber in his work. unlike other woodworkers swinstead sources his material from unusual sources, finding wood that is often thousand of years old. the long bench is one of swinstead’s favourite designs. each piece combines a weathered piece of wood that is supported by two very sleek and contemporary slabs of clear glass. these designs showcase the simple beauty of the wood, highlighted by the near invisible supports. swinstead’s work will be on show in ‘ancient trees/current work’ running from november 11 to 14 at the gallery in redchurch street, london.
