Genie Contemporary Hand Carved, Floating Shelf in Ash Wood by David Tragen

$3,832.80per item

About

If you’re looking to conjure up something special for displaying your favourite ornament, Genie will be more than happy to grant you this wish. As if from nowhere a smoke-like wisp appears and transforms itself into an elegant, slender shelf. This skilfully hand carved piece can be seen as functional art when used as a floating shelf or displayed in its purest form as a sculpture. The length can be customised from 800 to 1200mm. It comes with concealed fittings to create the illusion that it is “floating”.

Customization Options

The length can be customised up to 120cm. Due to its flexibility, Ash is the ideal timber for this piece. However other timbers can be used with the appropriate pre- treatment, prior to lamination.

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.
