Wood Awards 2018 shortlist,Digi-Weave,student designer

Tom Morgan, a student designer, created a colourful shoe cabinet using American red oak and influenced by his cordwainer’s background.

Initially inspired by the work of Richard Deacon, Tom began by breaking down red oak veneer into smaller strips. The thin strips, dyed various colours and pressed into calico fabric, have been woven together to create a screen that wraps around a solid wood frame with five slatted shelves within.
