Inspiration

In Newfoundland, a "bridge" can refer to a raised walkway connecting structures within a fishing stage. Stages are essential for processing and storing catches, and the bridge facilitates movement between different areas, providing a vantage point for overseeing operations. Like the bridge of a fishing stage, the Bridge Series was designed with functionality and mobility in mind. The pieces value the permanent over the disposable and are made to be trusted and treasured.

The Bridge Series by Swiss designer Anthony Guex has human-scaled proportions and fits into urban lofts as easily as the salt box houses of outport Newfoundland. The contemporary collection presents an appreciation of the ‘super normal’ with quiet aesthetics that prioritize utility and tranquility desirable in modern life. Connecting past to present to future, each piece features wide horizontal slats inspired by the bridges of fishing stages and Fogo Island’s vernacular structures.

Fabrication

Made using regionally sourced birch by our craftspeople at Fogo Island Workshops. Available in a range of finishes including hand-buffed Danish Oil, which deepens the amber colour of the wood, and White Oil, which neutralizes the amber tone for a raw matte look. Both absorb into the wood and richen the grain. A variety of coloured lacquers are available. Custom colours and sizing are available on request.
