Sleepy Bench
materials: Grey Ironbark, Blackheart Sassafras
dimensions: 1500 x 450 x 300mm


Sleepy Bench was one of 3 pieces commissioned by a client, the other 2 being a dining table and chess table. 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.

Sleepy Bench was designed as a simple platform for a TV with storage under. The doors are made from Blackheart Sassafrass, with the distinctive and contrasting grain pattern flowing from one end of the piece to the other. My kids decided that the grain pattern looked like a person lying down, hence the name of the piece.
