Rachael Heritage

Having studied furniture design at the Royal College of Art in London, Rachael is currently making a series of functional art pieces. This is furniture reduced to a minimum, solid geometric blocks, straight lines, gentle curves, verticals and horizontals, a process of refinement ultimately creating pieces with a sturdy elegance derived from their own simplicity. The interaction of solid shapes placed together is used as building blocks to make sculptural forms – a platform to sit on, a vertical plane to lean against. The combinations of shapes are carefully considered to create their own unique style without compromising any purpose.The pieces become functional art, practical sculptures, a way to redefine the way we look at furniture. It is this precise combination of geometry that creates their own unique style.
