Enda Scott Harmonograph Sofa
Since setting up his workshop in 2012, Irish designer Enda Scott has built a reputation for innovative pieces of furniture that demonstrate imagination in both their form and function. Scott’s meticulous bent wood technique shares a kinship with basket weaving or wicker, with bent wood supports interlaced to create a durable structure that appears delicate and graceful with a suggestion of perpetual movement. Scott’s first group of works for Todd Merrill Studio, The Harmonograph Collection, explores the relationship between sight and sound, its undulating lines representing a sound wave as it gradually contracts. Given the complex nature of the curves involved, traditional methods of lamination through the use of a former was unfeasible, and free form lamination failed to provide sufficient control to maintain the integrity of his design. To fully articulate his singular vision, Scott devised a process of ‘semi-form’ lamination that would combines both traditional methods. Overall, the series provides an insight into the connection between sight and sound, a relationship where audible harmony produces visual symmetry.
