Purewhyte unveils Drew furniture range
Purewhyte launched the Drew Dining Table and the Drew Coat Stand at the Designersblock Show 2009 in Milan.
The table is made from a continuous piece of steel, which is intended to create an intricate design that almost forms an optical illusion that is visible from all angles, thanks to the tempered clear glass top that the base supports.
The Drew Coat Stand uses the same design language as the table, but the form has been manipulated to allow for six apposing hooks to be created.
Both designs are fully assembled items, but a flat-pack solution can also be provided upon request.
The initial concept was hand modelled from wire, with many generations created before the final shape was selected.
After the solution was finalised, a complex 3D computer model was created and then a suitable metalwork supplier was found for the production of the sample.
The table measures 105cm x 105cm x 72cm, while the dimensions of the coat stand are 37cm x 170cm.
Purewhyte's Drew Occasional Tables are a lighter, smaller extension of the Drew range and are made from one continuous piece of steel rod, with pared-down forms to suit contemporary environments.
Purewhyte, a design brand founded by Kirsty Whyte, showcased its products at the London Design Festival on 19-27 September and at Portobello Dock on 21-27 September.
Purewhyte's debut furniture collection was launched at the Milan Furniture Fair 2009.
