Simple fix-less assembly, inspiration from a utilitarian scheme in the Second World War and a handy rut for keeping your loose change in – it's furniture like this that turns Ernest's head
Dan Marc is a new furniture maker on the northwest scene, dazzling all who see his debut collection The Section Collective. Well, it certainly caught Ernest's eye.
He's created four signature table pieces: an occasional table, sideboard table, coffee table and study desk – all with a folded steel surface atop hand-dyed birch plywood. And it's completely fix-less assembly – no fiddly bolts or rivets and re-reading of flatpack instructions at least 12 times.
The collection takes inspiration from the British utility furniture scheme during the Second World War, while also revealing a mid-century aesthetic.
We especially like the steel ruts along the tables' surface. Very handy for keys, loose change and Werther's Originals.
