Preview: 15th December 2011
CUBE is delighted to be launching DESIGNLab, a new space dedicated to the celebration of some of the most cutting edge designers around.
We are proud to be showcasing award winning cabinetmaker, craftsman and furniture artist John Galvin.
Glasgow based John specialises in the application of traditional cabinet making methods to design unique pieces of bespoke furniture that intrigue and captivate. Having launched John Galvin Designs in 2008, the self funded business has gone from strength to strength in the past three years.
These innovative creations encompass contemporary design with quality craftsmanship. This marriage is of the upmost importance and is clearly evident in his production of beautiful bespoke pieces that will stand the test of time.
As part of DESIGNLab John will be exhibiting his Manolo Lounger chair which has just won the furniture section of the 2011 Trada Wood Awards.
The Wood Awards is the UK's premier architecture and furniture competition celebrating excellence in design in the world's most sustainable material. Now in its ninth year, the Wood Awards is the most respected award for building and design in wood.
All works in DESIGNLab will be available to purchase, prices available on request.
