Mowat's playful Circumflex was inspired by the circumflex mark used in French punctuation (^) usually placed over a vowel to show that it is pronounced with rising and falling pitch.


Says Mowat, "Circumflex is an interpretation of the accent chair. Similar to a circumflex used in punctuation, the chair represents a lively change in tone. Simple details as well as the union of rich solid wood, lustrous plastic and bent steel, make the piece truly distinctive."

Mowat has also made a more compact version of her Contain Writing Desk.


The desk features milled compartments for writing implements and desk accessories which can be covered to make a flat writing surface.
