Digi-weave Shoe Cabinet
Designer: Tom Morgan
College: Rycotewood Furniture Centre
Wood Supplier: American Hardwood Export Council
Wood Species: American red oak
Tom Morgan has created a colourful shoe cabinet influenced by his cordwainer background. Initially inspired by the work of Richard Deacon, Tom began by breaking down red oak veneer into smaller strips. The thin strips, dyed various colours and pressed into calico fabric, have been woven together to create a screen that wraps around a solid wood frame with five slatted shelves within.
