Donna Wilson is a Scottish designer who has been creating colorful knitwear, furniture, plates, and other home accessories since 2003. At the end of September, during SCP‘s The Landscape of Symbols exhibition, the artist premiered a new timber furniture series titled Abstract Assembly.
The Abstract Assembly series features eight pieces of furniture: three chairs, four mirrors, and a bench. Each of the furniture is only available in a limited run of ten pieces.
Recently, designer Donna Wilson unveiled a new furniture series titled Abstract Assembly
The furniture has been crafted from oak and beech offcuts, as well as Douglas fir, Donna’s favorite timber.
The designs of the furniture are three-dimensional interpretations of Donna’s abstract watercolor paintings.
The furniture was manufactured with the help of Jon Almond of Produce the Goods and SCP.
“A year ago I embarked on a new direction with the main purpose to satisfy my creativity,” the artist told Design Milk. “I finally managed to stand back from what I was doing with my company and see what I needed to do.”
“With no idea where it would take me, I started drawing and painting in the evenings,” said the designer. “The next step was for me to bring these abstract doodle to life and start working in wood, I wanted to make hand-assembled pieces using traditional carpentry techniques and luckily my partner Jon was able to help me develop these pieces into a collection of chairs and mirrors.”
Donna’s designs were even featured in the ELLE Decoration UK magazine
“In between walks on the beach, I began to experiment – drawing and painting, and enjoying the freedom of watercolour and the fluidity of ink,” the artist revealed her creative process in an interview with ELLE Decoration.
