For his most recent line of exactingly minimal furniture, Vancouver-based designer Christian Woo found inspiration in a familiar yet unlikely source: his eldest daughter. Taking its cues from the “simplicity and honesty” inherent in her compositions of stacked wooden blocks, Woo’s sculptural Noga series consists of two side tables, a four-seater bench (a quartet of lathe-turned cylinders that continues his Column collection) and a coffee table, all unified by their shared elemental geometries.
A defining feature of both the 40.6- and 55.9-centimetre-tall side tables and the 91.4 centimetre-square coffee table is their ability to be entirely inverted — a nod to the toy blocks’ ever-changing assemblages. Each handcrafted piece is carefully hewn from FSC-certified solid wood and available in raw or charred oak (shown), natural or blackened walnut and even whitewashed ash.
