CASE STUDY NO.3 Bedside tables


Wayne Creaser

November, 2017

The maker’s interests in traditional Chinese and Japanese furniture and architecture are strongly reflected in the bedside tables, made as part of an investigation into the aesthetics of complex structure in partial fulfilment of a Bachelor of Design Arts (Honours).

Design principles such as line, space, asymmetry and repeating elements attract and engage the viewer.

The subtle curve and flare of the legs help to ground the piece, and the shape of the hardware contrasts with the otherwise square elements of the design.
