About Dulwich

Case Furniture - 2016

Dulwich is a series of dining tables derived from a precise and restrictive brief.

We needed a reliable, flexible and elegant construction method which could be used to produce a variety of different shaped tables with either fixed or extending tops, with storage of the extension leaves. And the legs had to be demountable for shipping.

We wanted to use of solid timber where possible, and the design had to express some personality, have some presence in a room. This set of criteria is tough and demanding but a difficult brief is very interesting and forces creative solutions.
