Stack was very late in the line of recent works. It was one of those little margin sketches. It followed on from Still. Same dimension timber sections and both use Jarrah. No magnets this time.
I started out by conceiving two rectangles, they could be benches or low tables or stacked for shelves. And then the complications set in.
I drew it up full size, then realised that a diagonal through the rectangles would make two sets. One in Jarrah and one in ebonized Jarrah, making eight triangular tables. Then you could mix and match the triangles to create a number of options with colour and shape.
Monaro Timbers did the joinery for me on this one. I did the glue up. It was good working with Shaun Hayward and Zane Robertson at Monaro.
STACK offers a transformative modularity, as do many other of these recent works. I imagine these tables in a home offering whimsy and play.
Excerpt from conversations between David Mac Laren and Stan d’Argeavel.
