Semaphor / Oblique are the product of a collaboration between Derek Welsh Studio and Graphical House.
Semaphor are made from Birch Ply, reversed in laminate, and finished by hand. They are beautifully boxed and packaged with a cotton drawstring bag.
Oblique are hand cut and drilled from Douglas Fir, and faced in laminate. The turned edge case has been hand stitched from bridle finished leather with a suede pigskin lining.
Dominoes reflect many principles of design: grid structures, graphic marks, numeric systems. As objects they have a particular function, requiring to be tactile yet resilient. Gaming time played out in the pub or at home on the coffee table means they will gradually wear, displaying evidence of their use, and developing the unique character of a much loved plaything. The very best in materials and artisanship have been combined to make something which will have a long and colourful life, to be both treasured and enjoyed."
