It is designed by Studio Thomson and fortunately I still have Mark's explanatory note which tells you about it far better than I can...
Lots of people send me nice stuff which uses interesting materials/finishing/processes (and hopefully some of our papers!). Sadly, I can't get to show these pieces of work to everyone ...so this is the best way to show others what people are up to. It's also my way of thanking those that I work with and take the time and trouble to send me lovely, interesting things. email@example.com
