Joseph Walsh
Irish, b. 1979
Follow

Irish designer Joseph Walsh makes ethereal items of furniture from large blocks of wood. The resulting objects, while functional, recall a range of formal references from Isamu Noguchi’s abstract sculptures, to Umberto Boccioni’s futurist paintings, to Alexander Calder’s constructivist mobiles. What Walsh and his artist-designer predecessors share is an interest in motion, speed, and biomorphic forms. Walsh has created a signature aesthetic by stripping wood into thin sheets and reconstituting them as sinuous, splayed forms that resemble vines, seashells, stones, skeletons, and other natural elements. In his recent “Enignum” series, Walsh fuses the Latin words “enigma” (mystery) and “lignum” (wood) as inspiration for beds, tables, and shelves that have a mysterious, enchanted quality.
