Dean Norton – Mood Side Fade, 2022
Mood Side Fade is a continued exploration from the Moodlum Collection, which has been carefully designed in rounded form definition to set the mood in any interior setting. A sculptural minimalist piece, with seamless detail achieved by traditional fabrication techniques and harmonious in both material and form. A visually light, sculpturally strong wood-turned table with a back-painted glass top and matching blue and white fade-coated base. With no visible fixings and elegant continuous curves that emphasise the faded surface, this minimal piece will unite and enhance the surrounding interior in which it sits.
Dean Norton develops products that consider form, function, refined detailing, and harmony in materials. Drawing inspiration from several contemporary Influences, he aims to create enduring pieces that connect on an emotional level, merging a balance between art and design whilst maintaining a minimalist design aesthetic. Born and raised in Essex, England, Norton originally studied graphic design before continuing his journey as an interior designer, graduating in 2008 with a Bachelor of Arts degree (Hons) in Retail Interior Design from the University of the Arts London. Now based in Melbourne, Norton launched his studio in 2017, drawing upon his design experience to create visually engaging, locally made pieces including furniture, objects, and lighting, re-imagining a variety of sculptural forms through the exploration of finishes and materials such as glass, mirror, steel, and timber.
