This captivatiing box is a collaboration with Bethan Englefield and the design was inspired by the Giants Causeway. The Thulean Plateau was a great basaltic lava plain that existed during the Paleogene Period. This plateau was broken up during the formation of the Atlantic Ocean leaving remnants existing in Northern Ireland – It is the origin of the Giant’s Causeway. Bethan not only designed the marquetry but cut and assembled it with her own hands. It was then passed to me as thin sheets of veneers called overlays or layons and I brought it to life as the Thulean. The Causeway theme continues inside with a rich lava coloured suede and lamb nappa. The Thulean is fitted with the Neat team hardware and finished with a satin finish.
