Ledge Console

Designed by Simon Johns

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.

Description

The most recent piece, the Ledge Console. Ledge is a floating console, mounted to the wall, in solid ash with a black glass top. It stems from material exploration inspired by the cliffs around Johns’ studio, making solid ash reference crumbling stone through a unique technique. The wood components are scored across the grain, then carved by breaking the woods grain, to create patterns of variable depths, according to Johns’ sketch of the rock formations outside. The facade of this piece wraps around to the sides, and the center opens up as two doors, to reveal a functional cabinet.
