Housed in a gallery in the heart of Shoreditch, the exhibition showcases Makermark’s new furniture collection, custom-made pieces and other creations.
The collection features the ‘Future/Rustic’ table, a contemporary interpretation of the traditional farmhouse table; and the ‘nu:folk’ bench, inspired by the relaxed charm of the Mediterranean. Both pieces are made using traditional joinery and capture the playful wit of the Makermark brand.
The custom-made pieces include a unique table commission. The ‘aXis’ table is highly sculptural and appears to have been formed from a monolithic block of black wood. Artist Beccy Mccray responds to the piece with a triptych of paintings, which like the table, reference the recurring cycles of the cosmos.
Other creations feature the ‘Phone Home’ phone stand, a product made using workshop offcuts. The simple design uses materials that would otherwise be destined for waste and provides Makermark with a test bed to experiment with new textures, finishes and material combinations.
