It was with ‘negative space’ in mind that I developed the ‘Stage Leg’, a folded steel leg that is reminiscent of the Queen Anne style – cabriole leg and could maybe even be considered as a modern version. The leg is a simple design and robust in strength, which is identifiable on sight, with its use of industrial processes and material. The ‘stage leg’ is named as such because of the ‘negative space’ it creates, which looks something like the drawn curtains of a stage area. As subsequence to this form and space the product conceptually demonstrates and reminds us of the true importance of ‘negative space’, as it is metaphorically the stage in which design comes to life, it’s the dramatic space in which we identify shape and form and it should work to entertain our eyes.
‘Stage legs’ can be incorporated into a large diversity of furnishing products and are easily fixed in place. With a powder coated finish the legs are durable and can come in a range of colours. To suite the variety of floors and needs, the legs have can be easily adjusted with castors, padded feet and or height adjustable feet.“Scuplture is essentially occupation of space, the construction of an object with hollows and solid parts, mass void, their variations and reciprocal tensions and finally their equilibrium” – HENRI LAURENS
