Taylor Hawkes Design took on the challenge to design bespoke table tops for the Kansas Smitty's Jazz Bar in Broadway Market, London. As a multi disciplinary design studio they focus on localised design and production using craft, 3D printing and CNC machining to produce furniture, objects and exhibition designs.
The result of this collaboration is a range of Richlite table tops, laser engraved with a design consisting of a range of concentric rings that are inspired by sound waves, reflecting the mood and music of Kansas Smitty's. Using Richlite as a material, Taylor Hawkes were able to explore how the table tops reflect both light and sound, interacting with the music and performance on stage. Made in Richlite Stratum, paper composite sheets pressed with a bamboo core.
