Among the many booths at the Architectural Digest Home Show, the work of Tucker Robbins stood out for his unique point of view and stylish way of mixing concepts, textures, and time periods in a way that feels very organic and natural.
Tables made of wood, soft and smooth on the outside, have a surprise when you see them from the side and the natural roughness of the material is exposed. A totem that mixes metal with multiple types of wood offers a variety of curved and circular shapes that come together to create a beautiful piece for a modern home.
Ironically, Tucker was inspired to create this collection while living as a monk for ten years with nearly no furniture. He now splits his time between New York and the remote jungle communities where he purchases his raw materials. His pieces have a strong sense of materiality, and many are based on ancient designs.
Tucker's pieces can be seen at the New York Design Center:
