The Vine collection was in fact developed for a specific project, after The RHS (Royal Horticultural Society) ordered 300 of Origin’s Contour chairs but couldn’t find a suitable table to pair with. When going through concepts I liked a drawing in which the table legs looked like garden vines, growing and inter-winding. This very quickly became the preferred route by all and then developed into a broad range of tables, providing suitability for the 4 heights of Origin’s Contour chairs and stools.
The aim was to maintain the sole use of steel throughout the products. Providing material continuity between tables and chairs ensuring a consistent aesthetic, durability and colour options. Mono-materiality also makes recycling products at the end of life more simple, with steel being the most recycled material in the world it can easily be melted down and formed into new steel products in a more circular approach.
