British furniture designer Tom Faulkner, has recently launched ‘Papillon’, a sculptural furniture collection partly inspired by his trip to California’s Joshua Tree National Park.
Tom mentions, “It was the shapes created by the lines between the boulders at Joshua Tree that caught my eye and I could see them being replicated in furniture in some way. They were the basis for the Boulder console last year, and this year they are transformed into the whole Papillon range – like a caterpillar into a butterfly”.
The Papillon collection includes a variety of pieces including dining table, occasional tables, a console, a screen, and a stool. Every piece is made from water cut steel or aluminum and has an ombre appearance, with the colors fading seamlessly in and out of each other.
