Underlying Geometry: Morgan delve into their dynamic designs for CDW

During Clerkenwell Design Week, 23-25th May 2017, Morgan will launch two new collections and host a series of events at their showroom on Dallington Street, EC1. The chosen theme for this year is ‘Underlying Geometry’.Morgan_Goodwood_170U_Green_NB_sm resizeBeneath the surface of every beautiful object lies a considered structure based on mathematical proportions, such as the golden ratio. From natural structures as delicate as leaves, to manmade structures as dramatic as the shard, the underlying structure is what pushes these forms towards ‘perfection’.  At their showroom, Morgan will be stripping back colour and focusing on the underlying geometrical structure in the space and products shown.

The main product launch for CDW17 is the GOODWOOD collection. Designed by Katerina Zachariades and inspired by mid century freeform shapes found in art mobiles and hand carved timber sculptures. The armchairs combine curves with a sculptural, profiled timber component giving the chair added lightness and elegance. Cut from solid walnut or oak with a handcrafted aesthetic, the collection offers an additional high back chair and a fully upholstered arm option with a loose lumbar cushion to add both luxury and comfort.Morgan_Goodwood_Detail_19_sm resizeAlso being showcased at CDW17 will be the HAVANA dining chair.
