We are delighted that our Prism Chair in ash with rushed seat has been awarded Best Sustainable Product at Decorex 2020.
Decorex is an international interior design show usually held in London but not surprisingly this year Decorex has become a virtual show. Design Nation are presenting thirteen members with new collections on the theme ‘Design Signatures’.
Design Nation has a selected membership of designers and craftspeople across the UK and provides opportunities for members to show their work at various events across the UK. Angus Ross is a Design Fellow of Design Nation.
The Design Nation showcase includes ceramics, furniture, silver-smithing, textiles, and wall-based artworks.

Our new Prism Collection is an evolution of an earlier innovation. Angus has been slicing and steam-bending square section timber for a years but by starting with prisms (triangular sections) he has created interesting, delicate functional, arched under-structures to support a new range of furniture.
The Prism Collection includes a chair, a stool and side-table and shelving unit.
The Prism Shelving is shown here in Scottish oak, with steam-bent arched stretchers at the back and six shelves. The profile is curved and it is available in bespoke sizes. Hand-made to order in our Perthshire workshop and available in local sustainable oak and ash.
The Prism Side Table in Scottish oak has an under-structure of steam-bent prisms and a triangular top with curved sides. Shown here with silver by Alex Connor.
The Prism Stool has the same under-structure and a seat of hand-twisted rush.
The collection is natural, sustainable, recyclable, repairable, biodegradable and part of a circular economy promoting the understanding, sensitive managements and use or local native wood.
