Presented by Carpenters Workshop Gallery as part of London Design Festival, the Slump collection includes nine tables that pair industrial sheets of glass with boulders, concrete, wood and tubes of steel.
Cocksedge worked with craftspeople in the UK to create each of the tables, stretching the glass under high temperatures and pressing it over large sections of rock, concrete wood or steel.
This creates the effect of the table legs being partially vacuum-packed, bringing what the designer describes as an "unexpected softness and fluidity" to the glass sheets.
As the materials react differently to this process each time, no two furniture pieces are the same.
The pieces themselves are a simple visual gesture, but the process behind them was complex. The challenge was how to transform something that has been made flat and rework it, while avoiding putting 'stress' back into the glass.
The Slump exhibition launched on 10 September as part of this year's London Design Festival, which is taking place both in-person and online from 12 to 20 September, but the show will remain open until 18 December 2020.
