The Gravity Series consists of 2 low and 2 high side tables and a long coffee table. The tables explore the relationship between simple forms and powerful forces, each relaying on its own weight and shape to allow it to function. The side tables are each cut from a single log of camphor laurel timber which is considered a week in Australia. The solid blocks are finished raw and suspended into steel frames and are held in place by their own weight.

The Story

Toby Jones is a creative director with 
a hands on approach and a varied skill set. Throughout his 15 year career he has worked across a wide range of disciplines for some of Australia’s most innovative and iconic exports. These brands exposed Toby to the world of fashion, music and lifestyle, subcultures that continue to influence the direction of his art.

Born on the north coast of NSW, Jones spent his childhood in a creative home. His mother, a textile artist and his father, a self taught woodworker and fine furniture maker, both inspiring his path. “Dad is a true craftsman, his workshop is next to our family home so i pretty much grew up in it.” A truly multidisciplinary artist, Jones has been a graphic designer and art director, owned and run his own jewellery label
– named Toby Jones, explored moving picture – winning an Aria award for best music video, produced major runway fashion shows and dabbled in various local and international art projects.

Fearless in his approach, Jones is not afraid to experiment and reinvent his aesthetic to create relevant ideas and products that engage contemporary audiences, ensuring that when the world as we know it is long forgotten, he leaves a legacy for the future to remember its past.

About the Blog

The LOCAL DESIGN blog is a creative visual diary with content created and contributed by leading local and offshore creatives and designers.

We want the creative community to hide their inhibitions, let their hair down and showcase whatever their eclectic heart’s desire. From the projects they are working on, the places they are visiting, their childhood memories, what music they are listening too, whatever makes them tick, it is a complete open online creative platform. Go on we dare you to pick up a camera and tell us your stories….

Along with this open-minded approach to the blog we will also be reporting on global and local design weeks, events, exhibitions, shows etc. with raw and real visuals alongside interesting insider perspectives.

We are very excited to see what will happen on these pages……
