Tim Oldroyd will graduate from Rycotewood with a Design and Make BA (Hons), you can see Tim’s work at the Rycotewood Summer Show, City Of Oxford College OX11SA, from the 20th – 24th June. Tim will also be exhibited at Grown Out of Rycotewod, Furniture Makers Hall, London EC2N2HE, 6th July 4 – 8pm.
We asked Tim to tell us more about his piece: ‘This Chair evolved in response to the title ‘What can furniture makers learn from Grand Designs?’ Clad in cedar with a rough sawn outer and smooth inner, to echo rough roof shingles and fine interior walls. The rusted steel frame provides a strong minimalist foundation for the seat, back and cladding.’
At this huge lifetime milestone we asked Tim about his plans for the future: ‘Future plans include exploring the commercial opportunities of this chair and not only furnishing my own home but building it too.’
