With a background in sculpture and nine years’ experience as a product designer, this is the first time that I have turned my attention to furniture making.
I originally designed The Contour Bench as an anniversary gift for my wife, but found that I enjoyed the process so much that I was inspired to explore furniture design further.
It was a lifelong love of topography that fuelled my ideas for The Contour Bench, I’ve always been intrigued by sculptural three dimensional form. My interest in topographic maps, and the idea of assembling multiple two-dimensional forms to create a three-dimensional form, very much inspired the range.
I love the idea of transforming everyday objects, such as seating, into works of art. I’m also a big believer in the idea that good design should be both functional and beautiful, while incorporating an element of the unexpected – that surprising or playful touch that elevates it beyond the ordinary.
With a passion for an interesting and unique aesthetic, FORREST designs brings you an elegant, considered & sculptural range of products.
