UK Furniture craftsman Marc Fish has created two stunning table designs inspired by the Nautilus Shell. His first, Nautilus I, was designed and crafted of Sycamore wood, glass, Japanese paper and resin. The Nautilus I has aluminum legs (photos are shown later in this post) while in Nautilus II, the base is formed of wood.
Handcrafted Tables Shaped like Nautilus Shells
In Marc’s own words he describes the brief as one calling for “a large statement piece, with maybe a hint of the sea – its location being a large loft style apartment overlooking the English Channel. An open brief from the client is every makers dream- room to explore, experiment and innovate. A new technique was developed to turn 4000 pieces of veneer strips into a 10 mm thick logarithmic spiral.” Materials used for the Nautilus I are Sycamore, Walnut, Japanese paper, glass and aluminum; for Nautilus II, Sycamore, Walnut and Glass.
Each was produced in an edition of 5, each unique in colour and style.
