En Passant Table
materials: Grey Ironbark
dimensions: 1600 x 750 x 350mm


En Passant Table was one of 3 pieces commissioned by a client, the other 2 being a dining table and TV bench. The 3 pieces were all to be made from Grey Ironbark, a favourite timber of the client. Each piece was to reference the others, whilst displaying its own unique personality. The commission was intended for a new house, so the location of all pieces and the proposed architecture, materials and colours of the house were all considered carefully during the design phase.

En Passant Table like the 2 other pieces of the commission, is simple in form with detail occuring in the joinery and inlays. The table was designed as a coffee table for a keen chess playing family. A removable box used for storage of the chess pieces slides in and out of one end of the table. En Passant is a sneaky move made (in passing) only by a pawn.
