An exhibition of objects created from Solid Floor timbers by local designers.
Solid Floor has been supplying and installing bespoke timber flooring for over twenty-five years. Acclaimed in equal measure for the variety and distinctiveness of its floors, Solid Floor is frequently specified by many of the UK’s leading architects and designers.
For SDT23, Solid Floor has gathered a selection of designers from diverse fields and crafts and given them a unique task. The assignment, handed to this talented crew, was to design and create novel objects utilising discarded bits – leftovers and offcuts from installations – of Solid Floor’s luxurious timber flooring. While generally considered waste on the one hand, this material has inherent beauty, not to mention many uses, on the other.
The exhibition’s objective is to make use of waste flooring material that would otherwise be thrown away, via new-designed objects that not only showcase the beauty of the different timber floors with their various textures and colours but also reveal the ingenuity of the designers themselves.
It is Solid Floor’s desire, through the exhibition, to forge long-term relationships with a community of designers who can use this waste flooring on a regular basis as a medium for their art.
