Home' Scoop Homes and Art : Insite 28 Autumn 2011 Contents Another student winner in the
Best Awards, Valet by Mark
Wu was designed as a functional
piece of furniture for an entrance
– a place to chuck your bag
and jacket or sit down and
put on your shoes. Mark was
inspired by the idea that “small
and sometimes seemingly
insignifica nt product interac tions
can resu lt in experien ces that
dramatically imp rove a per son’s
day”. Visit best awards.co .nz.

The de S ade table is Jon atho n L ogan’s
first attempt to represent eroticism in
the context of furniture. Made from 25
individually hand-tu rn ed kau ri table legs
a nd finished in high-gloss black , the
de Sade drips seductively to the floor. A
complete de Sade range is in the works.
“ I am still following this concept – at least
u n til it seems irrelevan t,” Jo natho n says.
“ B ut when is the erotic ever irrelevant?”
