The ‘Rustic Stool’ iterations are part of an ongoing series of furniture objects developed through a process-driven approach to design which engages directly with 3-axis CNC routing as a manufacturing technique.

The machine’s complex functionality is manipulated through playful and experimental interventions to produce unexpected surfaces that deviate from the smooth, perfected geometries commonly associated with the use of CNC routers in industry. These digitally-generated textures evoke the material in it’s raw state, defining the objects with a hybrid aesthetic that articulates rusticity through the language of a machine.

About the designer

Mark Laban

Mark Laban’s practice is balanced at the intersection of traditional and contemporary craft . His digitally-crafted rustic furniture explores the relationship between natural and artificial through a hybrid aesthetic design language. Underpinned by a cycle of research and development, his approach to design is deeply rooted in experimentation through making, material knowledge, and direct engagement with the manufacturing process. Mark was shortlisted for the the MullenLowe Nova Award in 2016, awarded the London Design Fair’s Associate Prize at New Designers 2017, and winner of the Wood Awards 2017 graduate designer category.

Presenting “PROXIMITY”, a collection created in collaboration with Southern Sweden Design Days showcasing a selection of new work from ten designers and studios. As a whole, the collection contemplates the notion of proximity, interconnection, and belonging. Whether through contemporary references to traditional crafts techniques; the use of locally sourced materials such as wool, lichen, steel, and wood; or playful visualisations of the notion itself, the selected pieces illustrate the importance of closeness, interconnection, and kinship in uncertain times. Featuring pieces by Andrea Santivanez, Andréason & Leibel, Ebba Lindgren, Förstberg Ling, Jóna Berglind Stefánsdóttir, Lab La Bla, Lisa Darland, Louise Hederström, Moa Lönn, and Studio M. Organised by Form/Design Center in Malmö, Sweden, Southern Sweden Design Days is an annual event currently in its second edition, which highlights sustainability, collaboration, development, and innovation in design. This year’s theme, as described by the event organisers, “[reflects] on the notion of being close – the connection between people, cities, countries, species, professions, etc”. The physical exhibition of “PROXIMITY” will take place at Lokstallarna, Södra Bulltoftavägen 51, 212 22 Malmö from 19 - 22 May 2022.
