Waywood - ‘Euclid’ Dining Table

Celebration of Craftsmanship & Design

 

18th - 27th August 2018

 


Waywood -  ‘Euclid’ Dining Table


Waywood have exhibited with us virtually every year since 1995 and have produced many of the finest pieces that have been displayed at Celebration of Craftsmanship & Design. 

They are a small team of makers based in Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire and fuse modern technology with traditional craftsmanship to stunning effect.  Their ‘Euclid’ Dining table is the latest example of their excellent design, produced using a superb fusion of modern and traditional manufacturing techniques.  It was recently awarded ‘Best in Show’ at Inspired Exhibition at Goldsmiths Centre, London. 

The ‘Euclid’ table gets its name from the Greek mathematician Euclid who wrote a treatise C. 300BC entitled 'The Elements of Geometry'.  This became the most influential text in the history of mathematics and has formed the basis of formal mathematical education to this day.  

The design of this table evolved from an early fascination with 3-dimensional geometry and the beautiful and immensely strong structures created by mathematically defined forms.  The hyperboloid structures on which this design is based, are formal and rigid in most senses, conforming to the criteria of the equations attached to them, yet possess a kind of purity and beauty unique to the discipline of mathematics.  Juxtaposing these formal elements with the skilful hand of a master craftsman and warmth of a natural material, offers a new angle to the dialogue between material, form and craftsmanship.  

Waywood are always happy to discuss commissions for bespoke pieces.  Their prime motivation is the desire always to create something truly exceptional, which gives pleasure to their clients, to themselves and to future generations.  They always aim to do an excellent job on any project and you can expect this to reflect in the service, design and finished result that they produce.
