Wedge

Barry Archer and Robert Hennessy founded Wedge Design + Furniture in 2005. They create contemporary furniture with a playful, modern aesthetic, and an emphasis on functional design and finish. Simplicity and practicality are key concerns in the production of their pieces.

Archer and Hennessy work with a wide range of techniques and materials including stainless steel, plastics, wood and glass. Their current collection of work takes its inspiration from the shape of a draped tablecloth. The colourful Drape cabinet and coffee table are made from high gloss Hanex, an acrylics based solid surface material, over a stainless steel frame.

Archer and Hennessy studied industrial design at the National College of Art and Design. Hennessy went on to study woodwork for a further two years at Letterfrack Furniture College, Co. Galway. The Wedge workshop is based in East Wall, Dublin.
