Onda Contemporary, Hand Carved, Floating Shelf in Cherry Wood by David Tragen

$1,328.79per item

About

Onda, is a gently flowing wave-like creation, designed to bring sensual curves into your living environment. This sculptural, wooden piece can be used purely as wall decoration or, with the addition of one or two of your favourite ornaments, show its functional side as a floating shelf. When I designed this piece the challenge I set myself was to create an elegant, delicate object, capable of concealing the 12mm thick rods used for hanging it. At the same time it needed to change thickness along its length and taper off to a very fine point, without creating brittle ends. The finished result, is available in American Cherry or Walnut and comes in a standard size of 1190 x 130 x 25.

About the Maker

David Tragen

I am a British designer and artist creating original, contemporary furniture, wall art and sculpture. I make both open and limited edition pieces to my own design, as well as working closely with clients on bespoke commissions. I work from a converted barn in rural Cheshire and all my designs are made to order, ensuring that whether you choose a piece from my existing collection, or commission something wholly unique, it will have been created for you, by me, with intense focus and attention to detail. I believe that by introducing beautiful things to the home, whether furniture or art, offers benefits that far exceed the aesthetics. The poet John Keats said: “A thing of beauty is a joy forever.” Owning something that makes your heart leap a little at every sight, bringing a future heirloom into your home, is an eternal pleasure. I find my inspiration primarily in the natural world and regularly use themes of movement and flow, characterised by clean lines and gently undulating curves. My work is predominantly handmade and blends traditional craftsmanship with digital design and production. My creative journey began in Barcelona in 1996, where I originally trained before returning to the UK, in 2002, to gain two further years’ experience in two of the country’s leading fine furniture workshops. Here I learned the precision and attention to detail that characterises the work of the best names in luxury, bespoke cabinetry, from Thomas Chippendale to David Linley.
