Julian Mayor at ICFF 2012

London based designer Julian Mayor showcasde a new collection of furniture and lighting at this years International Contemporary Furniture Fair in New York at the 21st Twenty First Gallery last week. Much like the construction of origami using specific paper folds, the sheet metal is heated then folded and weld in place to create the furniture forms."The Mirror Table and Fernando Bench were developed on a computer and with scale models, but the physical making process of folding and welding adds a layer of depth to the construction. The heat distortion of the manufacturing process allows light to pool in swirls on the surfaces.
