The Confluence leg-pod concept was developed while Evan was teaching as a visiting artist at the ANU School of Art under Dr. Rodney Haywood. It was originally an exercise to demonstrate to students that table tops could be structural as well as just a working surface. By following his own logic, he realized that there was a whole family of furniture forms that could be built around the leg-pod concept.
The original Confluence Coffee Table (pictured) was commissioned by Jorge and Jenny, a Canberra couple who already owned a magnificent red gum Confluence dining suite. In the same commission they ordered a Stork side table and a bespoke occasional table, all in highly figured river red gum with rock maple detailing. Now their house looks almost better than our showroom!
There is a distinct advantage to the client when ordering several pieces at once. It allows us to colour match and coordinate the whole project with your tastes in mind. Solid timber has a character all of its own, but we can use boards from the same log to make a range of pieces when we know it’s all going to the one client.
Dimensions; The table pictured is 1100mm square and 480mm high. See our other Confluence Coffee Table configurations on the web site.
Available timbers; red gum (pictured) blackwood, jarrah, walnut, rock maple. Other timbers POA.
