Timothy Oulton‘s daring new designs for Summer 2015 feature stunning new hand-finished leathers, unique materials, and his hallmark essence of authentic handcrafted design. A wide array of new pieces for summer 2015 breathe excitement into the brand’s iconic design themes. “We’ve been more daring this year, using materials that are completely new and developing new complex secondary finished leathers. Every piece is infused with energy, a fresh level of excitement,” says Oulton of his new collection.
Highlights include the epic Glacier collection, with burnt timbers frozen in time within a pristine block of perfectly clear acrylic, suggesting the collision of fire and ice. New Iris lighting echoes ship portholes and evokes a sense of discovery and wanderlust, while the new Museum dining and coffee table is crafted from reclaimed English oak parquet flooring, taken from old dance halls and disused buildings in the United Kingdom.
Spur Driftwood Tables – Bring the spirit of nature indoors with this sensuous feast of textures. Smooth cold acrylic is juxtaposed with the warmth of raw driftwood for a tantalizingly tactile experience. The driftwood has been collected by hand from beaches all over the world, each piece uniquely marked by swathing tides and weathered shores. Beautifully handcrafted, the once forgotten wood is suspended within the liquid acrylic, each tiny bubble like a last breath of air before being frozen in time. Also shown in burntwood (right).
Yeti Chair – Step out of your comfort zone and into the unnervingly wild Yeti. The finest quality sheepskin from long-haired New Zealand sheep is upholstered by hand onto a rustic wooden base. Get in touch with your primal urges and relax.
Iris Pendant Light (also available in table lamps) – Inspired by the world of writer Jules Verne and his sci-fi masterpiece, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. The Iris mimics the portholes of the submarine Nautilus, crafted by hand from iron and crystal. Like Verne, the Iris traverses the past, the present and the unwritten future for creative, storied spaces.
