Banister Furniture Series        
Furniture    (2022)

These series formed and evolved around previously fabricated banister handrail sections. 

I had started building a stool, but after getting distracted from the first design, I moved onto the second. This was when I realised the sctructure under the second would work perfectly as a backrest for the first. Bob’s your uncle – the once stool now had a backrest, so on and so on.

This is an ongoing series of experiements into reforming banister handrails into the   sctructure and form of furnitures.

Ideas, Objects, Thoughts & Things

Charlie Boyden

Charlie is a young British designer, artist and maker working with wood and other rudimentary materials. His designs often involve manipulating a process or material, taking ideas from a combination of material and object scenarios. This feeds into the form, texture and shape of his work.

From his studio-workshop based in East London, he adapts existing objects for new functions and builds many Objects of Strange Desire – Bespoke furniture, objects, structures, & lights for home, private and commercial projects.

Below you’ll experience some of these objects, projects and ideas.
