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. This particular design is a hybrid of both the Confluence range and the Stork/Dancer range.
The original Confluence Objet D’art Stand was commissioned by George and Jenny, a Canberra couple who already owned a magnificent red gum Confluence dining table. In the same commission they ordered a Confluence Coffee Table, a Stork Side Table and four Clearwater chairs. Now their house looks almost better than our showroom!
There is a distinct advantage to you 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.
