Fort Standard for 1882


Since beginning to work together, Gregory Buntain and Ian Collings of Fort Standard have developed a language and method that has become the unique starting point of their design process.

They used various types of communication to build upon each others ideas. In the process surrendering the idea of holistic personal vision for the potential for it to become something new, something that they can both "own" so to speak.

So for the development of these objects Greg and Ian quite literally had a conversation via the material they were working in – carving, etching, turning, adding, subtracting, each move informing the next, until they were satisfied that the object is as much something of its own as it is a collection their ideas.
