Hugh Leader-Williams in the Anvil Collective launches Spun Metal Wooden Stool and Side Table at Tent London. Hugh Leader-Williams’ Spun metal and wooden stool and side table was designed and made by Hugh Leader-Williams. Love this range of furniture that really has echoes of Scandinavian design in its simplicity of form.
Anvil Collective and Hugh has added his own contemporary twist on this minimalist form through exploring asymmetry and portability; as the furniture can fold flat thanks to an innovative structure. This range of furniture explores traditional metal spinning and wood lathing production techniques but for a contemporary application.
Hugh Leader- Williams recently was awarded the 100% Design Award, the British Contract Furnishing Association Award and the Made.com Award.
Anvil Collective was established during March this by five students of Loughborough University who are; Harris Chapman, Gareth Dearden, Alexandros Georgiadis, Hugh Leader-Williams and Eleanor Spurling. Each member shares a strong interest in innovation-lead production in their work by experimenting with both cutting-edge and traditional materials and processes.
