Ledge Console by Simon Johns
Updated: Dec 5, 2019
Ledge is a floating console, mounted to the wall, in solid ash with a black glass top. It stems from material exploration inspired by the cliffs around Johns’ studio, making solid ash reference crumbling stone through a unique technique. The wood components are scored across the grain, then carved by breaking the woods grain, to create patterns of variable depths, according to Johns’ sketch of the rock formations outside. The facade of this piece wraps around to the sides, and the center opens up as two doors, to reveal a functional cabinet. The opaque black glass top nods to the mirror effects of water and contrasts with the minerality of the rest. Available in custom dimensions, and in black or grey finishes.
