Simplicity is the pinnacle of the long, arduous journey, not the beginning.
Seating, Tables and Storage.
Fable is crafted from solid select oak with difficult manufacturing details disguised within a simplified aesthetic and return to the original principles. Sturdy, knock-down and self assembly, with no screws, bolts or mechanical fixing devises,
The Fable indoor timber range includes a stool, chair, lounge chairs, high stool, bar chair, tables, storage cabinets and a bowl and spoon; essential utilities pared back to embrace a basic need for simplified living.
Each of these pieces recall the humble objects familiar to children’s folklore and are inspired by the idea that a woodsman has stepped outside his cottage and hand carved a collection of functional timber items with little embellishment for everyday life. The simple setting and tradition of the children’s tale have been reinterpreted for modern day use.
“The secret is in the Fable joinery. For example, the top corner joins of each chair is curved timber and is made via special joinery which is extremely challenging to get right. I was never aiming at perfection for the Fable collection,
but I was aiming to express character in this design family and clearly show the skill and individuality for each piece made.” - Ross Didier
