Simon Johns is a fine arts–trained designer living and working in the secluded woods of East-Bolton in southern Quebec, Canada. Illustrating a conversation between the fabricated and the elemental, Simon creates one-off and limited-edition pieces of sculptural furniture and lighting. His work is a product of observing and living with the pure and raw shapes of his surroundings. The unaltered physical traits of primary materials are harnessed to evoke the emotions one feels in their presence. Using a variety of materials as vocabulary, he plays with their capabilities in mimicry, having them reference or reflect each other in precisely crafted poetic compositions. The outcome is work that is imbued with a sense of contemplation, as if we are to evaluate our connection to our own environment.
