Design:"Symmetry" Media Center
Materials: Walnut and Wenge
"My work begins with a tree. I source my material locally by using trees that were cut and would have otherwise gone to a landfill or burn pile. I want everything that I do to have as little impact on the environment as possible. When designing a piece I try to respect the material above all, and start most of my design with the boards that I want to use for that piece in mind."
VOTING IS NOW CLOSED ON THIS ENTRY
"My philosophy is that a piece is complete when you can remove nothing else from it without affecting its function. Function dictates the design. All of my pieces are built to be used, and still last a lifetime. In a disposable age I want my furniture to be something that you keep and maintain."
Designer: Todd Graham
Location: Edmond, OK
