Stone and Glass "Titan" Computer Desk by Pete Carling, 2005


"Titan" computer desk in Portland stone, Turkish Burr Walnut and glass; the lower pedestals, from solid blocks of best quality Portland stone, have been hollowed out to house computer equipment. The mirror-polished stainless steel tubes allow cabling to pass through from inside the stones to the surface and the lower glass shelf slides to allow access to the keyboard. Please note that that the final product will differ slightly from images due to the unique nature of the wood used and timber variances. Small size differences will also occur. Pete Carling, son of antiques dealer Roger Carling, first developed his eye for art and design while helping his father set up his stand at the Olympia exhibitions during the 1980s. This awakened a desire to immerse himself in the world of design, which started with a complete re-training in the art of furniture design and production. A year of cabinet making at the London College of Furniture in 1996 was followed by a three year "Furniture Design and Craftsmanship” degree at Chiltern University which Carling passed with a First and two special commendations Carling spent the next 12 years working as a cabinet maker and running his own woodworking business, slowly building up a select client-base for whom he made bespoke modern furniture, drawing much of his inspiration from both George Nakashima and Wendell Castle. He has developed his own specific style which is defined by the use of a variety of both natural and engineered materials. Carling combines these materials in such a way that he successfully displays the beauty of each individual material alongside the greater creation. Carling is, at heart, an Artist. His medium is furniture and his challenge is to have his unique pieces recognised as art while still retaining their function. We can think of no better application for the term “Functional Art”. Please note that all Carling pieces will be disassembled prior to shipping and will require reassembly at destination. Full instructions will be provided.
