c.a. walac., Room for Irregularities, 2019, Hand blackened steel, smoked grey mirror, silver mirror, wood

Room for Irregularities is c.a.walac’s first furniture collection. Comprising a series of functional sculptural objects made in hand blackened steel, their forms are inspired by the contours of lochs and the landscape of the Scottish Highlands. 

Mirror was informed in particular by a night-time drive taken by walac in Loch Lomond and seeing the reflection of a full moon on still dark water. Glasgow’s industrial past and the geometry of steel structures have also given impetus to walac’s work and an interest in how these two very different landscapes can merge, bringing about a new aesthetic.
