Lex Pott uses materials found in nature as his primary materials. Tables, shelves and coat stands result from combining the original structure of a tree with its industrial by-products. The compound of organic and symmetrical forms challenges the binary divide between nature and culture that underlies traditional design. It also reveals the organic origin of many industrially-produced items. Pott brings design back to nature.
27-year-old designer Lex Pott employs a raw and intuitive method. In his work, he returns to the origin of the materials he uses most: wood, stone and metal. He does not hide his designs under indirect layers, but reduces them to their very essence.
