Spanish designer Jorge de la Cruz's Between Centers furniture collection uses turned wood parts in unexpected ways.

De la Cruz's wood furniture designs were derived from his production system; woodturning between centers, demonstrated in the video above.

The collection includes a stool, a banquette and a table in maple wood and black-dyed birch wood.


A signature decorative element of the collection are the 'signs' at the extreme ends of each piece created by the woodturning process.


The patterns are created by the 'drive centre' and 'dead centre' on the lathe which press the piece of wood in order to rotate it.


Woodworkers normally remove them, but de la Cruz keeps the signs and uses them as decorative symbols.
