Anthony Leyland’s folded steel tables are part of a collection the British designer showed at London’s Designersblock in September.
Steel was the material of choice because of its indestructible sustainability. Because Anthony Leyland's designs are cut and bent from single steel sheets, they use no fasteners or other materials as components, so they are easy to recycle when they are no longer of practical use.
The single-sheet design technique can be applied to other forms and scaled to create chairs, desks, and so on. The potential for limited edition productions of the designs using glass, aluminum and stainless steel are being studied.
