All the bits that weren't desk-top. And the desk-top. With apologies to Ruskin, Rodin, Michelangelo, or whoever first said the thing about chipping off all the bits that weren't elephant, lion, or whatever.

A good article in the Financial Times Weekend, today by Emma Crichton-Miller. Emma has included our work in a survey of current 'meta-furniture' and how improvisation and craftsmanship feature in this type of design-art. Having a piece described as "looking like a cross between a 19th century photographer's tripod and hood and elaborate bird box" is taken very much as a compliment.
