Ovis (meaning “of sheep”) is a new creation that has come from a collaboration between two designers of very differing backgrounds.
Jamie Lewis, of Jamie Lewis Crafts, lovingly designs and hand makes beautiful felted objects, each one unique from the next. Whereas Ben Harris, (recent winner of two IDI design awards) is an industrial designer with years experience bringing functional products to mass production. They are the quintessential odd couple.
But what they both share an appreciation for is sustainable materials, none more so than felt. Combining their skills, they have made a hand crafted, production repeatable felt table that turns the common perception of wool and felt on its head. The removable wooden table top is only supported by 100% natural wool felt which is rolled into a cylinder and “stitched” together with rope. It is a simple, contemporary side table which even has storage space inside.
