The Ginkgo

 

immersion in scandinavian furniture design

Summer 2016 was spent in Copenhagen, Sweden, and Finland intensely studying furniture design under some of Denmark's most renowned cabinet makers. The first 6 weeks were spent studying Scandinavian furniture design history, traveling to numerous museums, studios, and historical sights, and keeping a daily sketch diary. Along with all of these we were to be developing our own furniture designs drawing inspiration from this Danish way of thinking.

In the last two weeks I entered the wood shop with my full scale drawing and prototype and poured my being into building a floor and meditation seat out of solid white maple with my own hands. 

The Ginkgo has been featured on Design Milk, Design Boom, World Yoga News, The Globe and Mail, and numerous other health and design related articles and blogs.
