Here’s a sweet new design by Halifax industrial designer, Carolyn Clegg. Carolyn designed this piece for a client to work as “functional art” for his clothes. Mike Manson built the sculpturesque tree using two interlocking sections for portability. Very cool! Visit Carolyn’s website here. [...] More »
Stylish dresser design by Carolyn Clegg
I had the pleasure of meeting Carolyn Clegg in person at our launch party on November 30.
She’s a talented industrial designer based here in Halifax and much of her work specializes in making use of discarded furniture and materials that would otherwise end up in the landfill. We feature one of her latest designs in the Currents section of our new winter issue.
She recently sent me over some photos of her latest design and it’s a beauty. The piece is mostly made from repurposed pine—except for the doors, where she went with new wood. I really love the natural motif on the front and how the wood grain peeks through.
“It’s a pretty straight design for me,” Carolyn says. “The doors conceal shelving for the clients collection of Tshirts. The bottom half utilizes cubbies because the client wanted a separate space for socks and undergarments. We realized after the fact that the cubbies would be a great space for shoes as well.” For more information about Carolyn’s work, check out her website.
