‘Swirl’ is a glass topped coffee table with a timber base made from 24 triangular pieces of Victorian Ash. Inspired by the seed pods of the desert sheoak, the design uses triangles ‘leaning’ to one side edged jointed to create a sense of dynamism, recalling pleated material in movement.

The clear glass top allows the viewer to appreciate the geometric forms of the base, and the interplay of light and shadow of angled planes of Victorian Ash. Photo: Randal Kohn.
