ebonised Victorian ash, brass, concrete

Pinch Noir is a bench / coffee table designed around principles of concealing and displaying reading material.
The act of ‘pinching’ a rectangular loop forms a nook to stash away trash magazines. At the other end of the spectrum, embedded brass strips act as hanging rails to display and keep more important publications close at hand.
A matt black finish was achieved through traditional ebonisation techniques as opposed to employing oil-based stains. The piece cantilevers onto a polished brass leg which reflects the surrounding environment and reinforces the strong, dark silhouette of the form.
