Authentics presents a new versatile and poetic product by Gabriel Tan. Three distinctive forms shaped from wood with a heavy base in granite convince with their formal beauty and craftsmanship. The turned door stops with their soft sculptural forms are a characteristic, Shaker inspired product. The harmonic wood objects can also be used as paper weights or book ends.
Gabriel Tan Studio is a design practice working at cultural intersections. Constantly exploring new ways to work across disciplines, reinterpret tradition, craft or technology, the studio has designed furniture and products for Ariake, Blå Station, Menu, Design Within Reach, The Conran Shop, Asplund and Abstracta.
His works have won the Industrial Designers Society of America's IDEA Award, Japan Good Design Award, the President's Design Award and been exhibited at design fairs globally. Aside from his design work, he has guest lectured at Lasalle College of the Arts, National University of Singapore, University of Oregon, Pratt Institute, and also served as a jury member at the Cannes Lions Festival and Core77 Design Awards.
