Hidden Inlays Studio FormaFantasma


Marquetry updated

25th August 2010

Marquetry has been having a resurgence over the past year or so with the likes of Bethan Laura Wood (ex RCA) and Studio Job as well as one of my favourite design studios Studio FormaFantasma with their piece 'hidden Inlays' for Droog.

A traditional wood working technique, modern day designers are using the technique to bring a new aesthetic and artisan approach to products.

The latest to emerge is from Gareth Neal who has designed a series of picnic benches and ping pong paddles.

Titled Urban Picnic, the tables and ping pong paddles are to be found in disused areas around east London on the 28th and 29th of August.

I use this blog as a notebook of inspirations – I post things I see and like and thoughts of mine. I don't revolve around a singular topic and neither does this blog. Everything and anything is relevant
