Enignum Canopy Bed
The concept behind the Enignum Canopy Bed was to create a space, a cocooned feeling of protection and enclosure. The silk canopy creates a sense of enclosure which can be customized for each season.
In the Enignum series of work, I have stripped wood into thin layers, manipulating and reconstructing them into free form compositions. I then shape through these layers to reveal not only the honesty of the structure but the sculpted form which is a unique collaboration of man and material. The title derives from the Latin words Enigma ('mystery') and Lignum ('wood'), for me they sum up the series: the mystery of the composition lies in the material.
