Machined from dark and porous lava stone, the Converge Bookends have a distinctly sculptural aspect. When separated, the pair of abstract forms can be used to prop up a line of books, the richly textured surface standing out against the backdrop of wood or metal shelves.
Colin King’s artistic genius shows through in the cleverly interlocking design, allowing the bookends to be used elsewhere in the home as decorative objects. The matching cutouts allow the two parts to be combined into a sculpture, creating an intriguing and tactile decorative object suitable for display on pedestals, as a dining table centrepiece, or placed on a coffee table.
With a background in contemporary dance and interior design, Colin King brings a dancer’s awareness of stillness to his pieces.
His work exhibits exacting attention to detail and an unparalleled sense of spatial awareness. King breathes new life into the forgotten corners of our homes, transforming them into perfect moments worthy of attention. Colin King has worked with a wide variety of brands, from HAY and Audo Copenhagen to Anthropologie and Zara Home.
