These pieces of furniture have been designed by Katie Walker. Having won many awards and working on a variety of commissions she has designed a wide range of products. However these are my favourite. I think the “Weight and See mirror” above is a wonderful idea. By moving the position of the weight on the base plate you adjust the angle of the mirror. Simple but great. The Ribbon Rocking chair below fascinates me. The gentle smooth curve of the single piece of laminated rippled ash that forms the chair structure is a charming and innovative aspect of the chair. The mixture of shapes and forms created by the angular chair section inside the gentle exterior curve creates a very visual striking design. No wonder it won the Grand Designs product of the year award in 2008.
