Low Table is the latest series of furniture from Anthony, exploring the construction of Japanese Kumiko latticework that was traditionally used in ‘Shoji’ sliding screens. Kumiko began as an art form in the 8th Century and is a process involving the connection of wooden pieces together in intricate patterns to create a panel. Anthony’s Low Table is made from English Pippy oak with a Kumiko lattice shelf and leg details.

Anthony graduated in 2007 with a BA in Furniture Design and Craftmanship and gained experience working in workshops for architects and designers before launching his own business in 2015. Anthony takes his inspiration from a diverse range of practices found in British, American Shaker and Scandinavian design. The intricate traditions of Japanese joinery are currently reflected in the exquisite new pieces featured as part of the Table Manners showcase.
Anthony favours the use of native locally sourced timbers creating work that celebrates the natural texture and pattern of the wood whilst demonstrating the most exacting standards of design and craftsmanship. His workshop is based at the Sylva Wood Centre in Long Wittenham, Oxfordshire. Anthony was selected alongside other makers to participate in the Crafts Council Hothouse programmed in 20019 and is a member of Design Nation.
