“My designs are often based on the use of pure and natural materials. I strive to create harmony in shape, function and context.”
The Cutting Board
Next to the Poplars, Lex Pott has the Cutting Board for Weltevree. The Cutting Board is a result of a form study, an experiment, something that’s characteristic to a big part of Lex Potts work. “I wanted to find out how you can create a tube out of a wooden plank. The result is a perfectly round tube in the corner of the cutting board which is not only convenient for serving, but also for hanging the cutting board.”
The Rabat Shelving
Lex’s latest addition to the Weltevree collection is the Rabat Shelving. He got his inspiration for the design of the shelving system from Scandinavian architecture. Lex: “The inspiration comes from sheds and houses in Sweden, where you see this iconic profile of overlapping wood everywhere. If you turn this technique around, you create a functional shelf support. You simply hang the shelves inside.” The result is a profiled interior, while the exterior stays smooth: a uniquely refined closet that can be used indoors and outdoors.
