In Clover by Sawdust Bureau
Pier Carthew

Sawdust Bureau has created a collaborative piece in conjunction with renowned Australian architect John Wardle exhibited as part of Melbourne Design Week.

This dining table was realised for 'Relatively Useful', an exhibition at the Heide Museum of Modern Art which showcased several of John's designs for 2022 Melbourne Design Week. It was crafted by Bryan Cush of Sawdust Bureau.

The piece features clover-shaped legs which penetrate through the top and a sliding tray which glides down the centre of the split tabletop. Materials include leatherwood timber used to construct the frame and Tasmanian oak for the top, all reclaimed from the bottom of a Tasmanian lake.

This project has been longlisted in the furniture design category of Dezeen Awards 2022.
