Industrial Designer James Tattersall

James Tattersall is an Industrial Designer working in Hackney, with a small but wonderful portfolio of products for the both the commercial and domestic market. Working predominantly in wood his background in Cabinet making has informed his approach to design on his current projects.
My two favourites from his collection are his Tabla – a simple table inspired he says by the African Tongue Drum. In which the boards of surface resonate different sounds depending on the length, much like a xylophone for those unfamiliar with African Tongue Drums! It’s a very clever idea that has been executed perfectly, allowing the table to remain aesthetically pleasing whilst retaining its function. This particular table was donated to the ‘Joy of Sound’ charity in South London in their Sound Therapy sessions with disabled children.
Secondly, are his Bylights made from off-cuts of wood from other projects. An idea that is annoyingly simple and has you kicking yourself that you didn’t come up with it. Each candle slots together to form a row of candles, grab yourself a couple from the talented Woodsman at www.jamestat.com
