Inspired by the traditional 1780’s George III commode, we have reinterpreted its design for a contemporary audience. Our latest edition of the George Chest in Ash is produced by a series of rectilinear cuts. The design has a rugged sophistication and the commode is seemingly emerging from the carved fragmented block of wood. The design was achieved through the combination of a computer-controlled routing machine and hand-carving techniques, merging notions of history, traditional craft, and contemporary design.
The George Chest was acquired by the Victoria & Albert Museum in 2013 and is on display in their permanent furniture collection.
