Tom Faulkner on Award Winning Form
Tom Faulkner has been on award winning form recently. The designer recently picked up three awards: two International Design & Architecture Awards and The Best in British Craftsmanship at Decorex.
The prestigious International Design & Architecture Awards are hosted by Design Et Al and reward the best in design from across the globe. Tom Faulkner won the Bespoke Cabinetry/Installation for the Odessa cabinet – a beautiful and simple design wrapped in bronze with figured silver sycamore veneer and inlaid bronze detailing.
In addition to this they also won the Table award for the creative AVA dining table. The visually stunning AVA is constructed of three triangular shapes, that appear to fall together, creating two tetrahedrons – one seemingly balanced on the other, supporting a glass disc. They are welded together in such a way as to make an incredibly (and deceptively) strong table – with a very slender neck that is able to support a heavy top.
Tom Faulkner were also presented with the Best in British Craftsmanship Award at Decorex by The English Home editor Kerryn Harper-Cuss. Tom launched a number of new pieces at Decorex 2017, including The Edge dining table inspired by a 1970s design by Italian designer Nanda Vigo and Richard Serra’s House of Cards.
Also on display was a new version of the iconic Capricorn dining table which was cast in concrete, bronze and glass.
Kerryn said, “I have been following Tom’s career with interest for several years – his designs have a wonderfully distinctive DNA and every year he evolves this with use of beautiful new materials whilst always retaining that idiosyncratic thumbprint in every piece.”
Congratulations Tom and all of your hardworking team. Visit their showroom to see these, and many other designs for yourself.
