Among other attractive and functional furniture pieces by Alex Bradley's debut DUAL RANGE collection, is Notch 2tone, a multifunctional object which can be used as a side table and a stool, while at the same time the void space provides area for storage, and the “notch” acts like a bookmark!
According to Bradley, the objective of ‘Notch 2Tone’ is that of durability and endurance, while his inspiration and his creativity comes from observational insights and the ritual nature of human behavior. All the above is reflected in the functionality of the object, its form and its finish. Serving as a side table and a stool // Notch 2tone// also provides a void storage space, while the notch allows a magazine or book to be stored whilst bookmarking the page! The raised back section provides an area to lay literature open, whilst providing further stool cues.
Notch’s form, provides not only the functional requirements stimulated from the outset, but reflects its ideology in its simple and austere aesthetic. The same does Notch+.
This is echoed by the finish, encompassing a hand brushed exterior and virgin material interior. While celebrating the heritage, skill and quality of the British manufacturing industry Bradley showcases an exquisite arrangement of modern and traditional techniques throughout the design and manufacturing process.
