Heat Sensitive furniture by Jay Watson teaches you to be environment conscious

Andrea Divirgilio / August 14, 2012

Here’s the bespoke furniture that lets you witness how oblivious we can be to every effect we have on our nearby surroundings and environment on the whole. Described to be a deceptively understated design with a dynamic twist, Oxfordshire-based bespoke furniture designer Jay Watson’s intriguing furniture set dubbed as ‘Linger a Little Longer’ maintains an evidence of any kind of personal contact in the form of enigmatic watermark. Actually, the thermochronic finish of the table and benches responds to the heat of skin, body parts or other decorative or dining accessories placed on it, leaving an evanescant ‘watermark’ on the particular point of contact. Designer Jay Watson’s creatively experimental ‘Linger a Little Longer’ furniture set transverses a new terrain in the areas of furniture design, manufacturing techniques and materials.

Reacting once contact with the lacquered surface of the 6-8 seater table reaches 27 degrees, the heat create all kinds of familiar and fascinating patterns, that retains their interest or humor factor, also as they fade from pale grey to the deep black finish of the table at room temperature.

And, working beautifully with the grain of the solid, locally sourced chestnut timber, these smudges, fingerprints, rings and interesting patterns make this design a talking point.

Jay Watson Design Studio offers the ‘Linger a Little Longer’ thermochronic table and benches in black on solid European oak, while other colors and timbers are also made available on request.

Also, we have earlier seen some of the other one-off designer furniture pieces like the coffee table with a built-in eco-friendly fireplace, the furniture inspired by Swarovski crystal, the gold leaf wooden furniture made by Rotsen, the twig-inspired bench by Xavier Dumont, and the James De Wulf’s steel fan table.
