Wishbone: Exploring the possibilities of steel


Wishbone is a programme of tables exploring the possibilities and strength of steel. Alexander set out to create a system of tables that showcase the table leg as the design feature. The leg demonstrates the physical and structural properties of steel, with unique balance of shape, material thickness, weight and structural strength.

The legs visual appearance suggests a light and simple design yet strong and solid in its matter. The design explores the boundaries of shape following function, by visually suggesting a strong support familiar with that of architectural building or bridge-like structures.

The Wishbone collection is still in production and is manufactured by Planex.
