This collection of furniture is inspired by objects that have been left exposed to incrustation from the sea. Their shape, once crisp and clear, soon becomes blurred and secondary as the sea-life encapsulates and transforms them, taking over the objects original skin and clothing it in their own.
The barnacles that adorn this table were taken from original specimens of the Balanus Poreatus barnacle; collected in 1921 for the Natural History Museum, London. Their form has been 3D scanned, edited and then cast to produce a variety of shapes and sizes. This ensures that every object from the collection will always be unique with a varied barnacle placement each time.
