Like many of Simon's designs, this camphor hall stand began as a simple 5 line sketch in one of his old drawing books (he has shelves full of them).
It takes influence from traditional Japanese design with a modern, raw exposed grain aesthetic and is a perfect display of restrained and thoughtful – but very useful – design.
This is not the first time he has sold this design on the market, but is the first time he's made it out of Camphor Laurel.
"I have already made 3 others hall table using different materials. Two were made of Australian Casaurina and the other one was made of American white oak. They've been really popular."
