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.

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.
Often the ordinary and visible present becomes vague and forgotten. Analogue experiences have boiled down to a minimum during the last years. We are currently in a situation where much of our regular rhythm was interrupted, the everyday was frozen and almost disappeared for a while. It became particularly evident how the environment we are functioning in, what we have or possess, matters. Layers of the past provide a means to describe the world and rethink the evident. Remembering and untangling the past and the local provides a captivating perspective through types of objects, materials, and methods of making.
The Estonian collection, “Revisiting the Past”, is based on tracking the everyday and the conventional, translating observations, reconsiderations, and hints of the past into contemporary design. More than ever, the future is about rethinking the present and the past, of what we have and need. The past is heavily coded in our future.
