Lee Sinclair

My Furniture falls into two distinct aesthetic areas, organic and technical. The majority of my one-off commissions I regard as my organic, sculptural pieces; whereas my hard edge designs I see as “technical” or engineered. These “technical” pieces include the CONVERTABLE, a coffee table that converts to a six seater dining table, and the “Pylon” coat stand.

I am fascinated by the fluidity of natural shapes, especially the human body. My furniture reflects this and I think that I have captured this human relationship in form and practicality. I also integrate engineering techniques into my furniture design, leading to many original concepts.

I adhere to the principle that “form follows function”, but my definition is wider than pure practicality. It includes an awareness of a client’s aesthetic need. I use timber as a “plastic” material that I shape by cutting and bending, allowing construction of complex shapes for “human” environments without sacrificing function.

"So long, and thanks for all the fish"

After very many years of craft&design we've decided that we'd like to retire and so in 7 days we will close the craft&design website, including craft&design Online and the craft&design Selected Makers and Craft and Design Month websites. We've had a brilliant 35 years and would like to thank all our readers, advertisers, writers, contributors and website visitors for their support throughout that time. Our very best wishes to you all for the future - Angie and Paul.
