Michael Carroll 'Rope Suspension Bench'

Michael Carroll brings to his furniture design an interest in engineering and a desire to conceive new structural and joining techniques. In the past this has manifested in a chair joined by poured pewter (melted down from old tankards) – “22 Tankards 2011”, and a bench inspired by the humble clothes peg – “Peggy Bench 2012”.

‘In-Tension Desk’ and ‘Rope Suspension Bench’ are both on display at ‘Furniture Forward’ at William Benington Gallery in Islington, London.
