Marc Fish and the Nautilus II

East Sussex based designer Marc Fish created the Nautilus II for a client, with an open brief stating only, apparently, that it had evoke a hint of the sea. What he has achieved is an innovative and beautiful piece that is as much art as it is a functional piece of furniture.

4000 pieces of veneer strips were used to create a  a 10 mm thick logarithmic spiral, this table made of walnut and sycamore is a real feat. Undeniably reminiscent of sea shells, but without being in any way contrived, it is elegant and unique.
