CHRISTOPHER JENNER:

CELEBRATING CUMBRIAN SLATE AND ITS HERITAGE


Whilst working at Christopher Jenner, was part of the team designing a collection of furniture that was made from Cumbrian slate and held together with intersecting turned brass joints.

The pieces are a real celebration of Cumbrian slate, the landscape it is from and the heritage that makes it such a unique material.

A key part of my role was designing these joints that allowed the slate sections to slot together, making it possible for the user to construct and take apart the item. I

I also traveled to Cumbria to visit the slate manufacturers and work with them to fine tune the logistics of this project. It was through this collaboration that I was then able to move onto the technical realisation of the whole collection.
