Wood Awards 2018 shortlist: Ovo Furniture Range

The range celebrates the age-old tradition of craftsmanship in everyday objects. Durability and careful detailing in the American black walnut and oak used have been combined with strong materiality to create a range that is tactile and generous.

Fitting for both commercial and domestic spaces, the collection includes two variants of dining table, accompanying benches, sideboard, shelving unit, high table, stool and occasional tables. The collection relies on the tactility of wood.

But it is the very boldness and simplicity of the forms that demand perfection in execution of the craft.
