“Invisible Force” At the World Fire Sculpture Competition Riga 2014

In 2014 Ben Rousseau and Stuart Farrelly were selected to represent the UK at the European capital of culture Riga’s hosting of the World Fire Sculpting competition.

The 5m high installation was titled “Invisible Force” which was a huge timber structure filled with straw that had a huge timber cube filled with straw that span on steel cables in the centre of the structure and when burning in darkness rotated like it was floating in void of space.

W12 Show – Corian Furniture

Rousseau Corian Wedge Collection

Commissioned by CD UK (distributors of Corian in the UK) – “Wedge” is a new collection of beautiful domestic furniture that effectively unites the dynamic and practical qualities of Corian®  with the warmth and familiarity of timber to produce a very complementary partnership.

This collection highlights the similarities of the fabrication processes of the two materials, and offers an introduction into how diverse and easy both are to work with and combine.

The combination of timber and veneer with Corian® shows what a wonderfully diverse and practical material it is. Using it with timber softens the overall presence of the material while taking the most practical qualities of each. I hope this collection provides designers with more of an insight into what is possible with Corian®.

Made from Glacier White Corian® and Black American Walnut.

Take a look at the video to get a glimpse of the furniture at the W12 Exhibition.
