In hands, wood is paired with Perspex or copper piping to create pieces that would not look out of place in an art gallery. “I love the old ways,” he says, “but I don’t rely on them. It’s important to keep pushing the boundaries.” His Top Notch desk is like a giant puzzle of traditional Japanese joints – “no glue or screws” – that’s been fitted with ultra-modern Perspex drawers; his Monroe chair is a layered cascade of wooden blades, like swans’ wings or fanned book pages. It got its name after White heard a client compare it to the billowing folds of Marilyn’s dress as she stood over the subway grate. “I thought, that’s genius – I’ll nick it.”
With this is investment furniture. But, that’s the point: “It’s about longevity as well as the craft. You get an original piece you can use and love every day, then pass on to the next generation.”
