SLICK PICK OF LDF 2012



Needle-like steel legs, seamlessly joined to a tabletop of uni-directional layered carbon fibre. This material is usually hidden in the interior structure of Formula One racing cars; here the designers Terence Woodgate and John Barnard bring it to our attention in this incredibly slick table and chair.

The carbon fibre is incredibly strong; when first showcased, the table was displayed supporting a racing car. The dripped oil aesthetic of the legs and the 2mm thickness of the table - incredible! 

I saw this at Established & Sons, Wenlock Road N1. Their working studio/showroom is open this weekend as part of London Design Festival
