Endgrain is an innovative concept developed by London-based Raw Edges Studio.

Description by Raw Edges: The idea behind Endgrain is to harness the grain of the wood in order to carry dye right the way through sections of timber. Blocks dyed is different pigments are then glued together with the grains facing vertically to create three-dimensional patterns – then shaped with a computer numerically controlled (CNC) machine. ‘Endgrain’ is therefore a process that starts very crafty and ends quite industrial.

Rather than designing a single piece of furniture we chose to transform the 300-square-metre space with an installation that extends across the full room. The house being surrounded by a vast and striking landscape, we liked the idea of bringing the outside inside and turning the gallery into a garden

Furniture is usually mobile. We played with the notion and thought of pieces that grow from the ground and looks similar to tree trunks. We used pieces of dye-soaked timber to create a patterned floor, with benches and stools emerging from more densely coloured areas.

A coloured pathway winds through the space of the gallery, leading from one bench to another. Each seat is positioned to allow the sitter to view particular sculptures.
