New Designers 08: graduate designer Adam Rowe has produced a range of furniture made from oriented strand board (OSB).
Rowe used the material, which is made of bonded wooden strips, in his Victorian Grandfather Chair (above) and Chippendale Writing Desk inspired by Chippendale furniture (below).
By using OSB and traditional production methods, Rowe says he wants to challenge "the misconceptions of material aesthetics and the value placed on material".
"The Victorian Grandfather Chair combines traditional craftsmanship and high quality leather with a modern cheap sustainable material," he adds.
Rowe uses OSB made from sustainable wood sourced in the UK. The designs were presented at New Designers in London last month.
Rowe graduated from University College for the Creative Arts in Rochester, England this year.
