A small hardwood box made from a repaired piece of scrap timber, rejuvenating this lumber and giving it a new lease at life.
Made from a single piece of damaged timber, this design was the culmination of a research project looking into repair, focussing on repairing the raw material rather than a damaged product. Wooden fixings called bowties were used to secure the timber before processing, and the relative position of pieces from the raw blank was preserved in the final design, meaning the original defect still flows around the entire product. Preserving and highlighting both the defect and its repair, adding to the materials narrative, and giving it a new lease of life.
