Founder and Creative Director Quinlan Osborne has established an instantaneously recognizable aesthetic for Claste Collection that is rooted in the passion for contemporary design he developed while practicing as an Architect for fifteen years prior to shifting his attention to the world of collectible design and furniture. His architectural background continues to inform his minimalist philosophy beyond the visual to include themes such as tension, fragility and the idea of threshold as experience. These notions characterize his desire to challenge prevailing notions of what furniture is and push the boundaries of how furniture can simultaneously remain relevant within both the world of design as well as contemporary art. His work for Claste Collection has been recognized with numerous high-profile international design awards, including the Archiproducts Design Award, the Good Design Award from the Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Art and Design and the Grands Prix du Design for Quebec.
The floating shelf of marble punctuates this minimalist console with a touch of the unreal. Without the use of any concealed hardware the invisible joint between the marble and the glass creates an effect that is both striking yet elegant and refined. The glass enclosure allows for items to be displayed on both surfaces and is available in both ultra-clear and bronzed glass which allows for various combinations of colour and materials. Available in both console and writing desk versions, depending on the height of the floating shelf, it creates a stunning yet flexible piece appropriate for many situations.
