Shale Low Credenza (72") by Simon Johns

$9,000per item

About

Both monumental and subtle, the Shale Credenza brings the intricacies of nature’s geology indoors. The wood doors are scored vertically across the grain, and details of a cliff’s facade, mapped out by Simon Johns, are carved into them replicating the textures of it’s crumbling surface. Patterns within the carving and the wood’s grain create optical illusions depending on the light’s orientation making it as striking from afar as from up close. The piece is available in low (25’’ high) and high (30’’high) versions. The credenza comes in black or grey. It comes with a black, mirrored or brass base made to order. It can also be wall mounted. Due to the hand-carved facade, no two pieces are quite the same. *Also available in 84", 96" and 108" versions. Custom sizes available upon request. The Shale Collection's name was inspired by the cliffs outside Simon Johns' studio, in the Missisquoi Valley in Quebec. Shale is a type of rock formation that tends to split and erode in layers, leaving behind a layered and random composition of textures. The mapping of the composition of this cliff was sketched on to the pieces of the collection, and carved out in layers, with a router and a chisel.

Customization Options

Length and height are customizable for a fee. Optional brass base. Optional grey finish. Optional interior drawers.
