Custom Furniture Commission
Two furniture elements to occupy the same space: a dining table
at one end and a coffee table at the other.
Material qualities were suggested; vaque terms such as liquid,
irridescent, and interdependence had value for the clients and
were to be investigated.
these terms, and a shared interest in certain artists and past
designers work, gave us a common language for the project.
The dining table has been developed as a marriage between blackened
steel and ebonized wood. The interdependence between parts and
materials (wood contact surface vs formed steel structure), gives
stability and reveals itself on the surface. the impossible intersections
between plates becomes an opportunity to introduce a third liquid
element - resin, cast into these voids.
For the coffee table, the interdependence is created between a
cast top, with integral bowl, and a built up base which keys into
the top and receives the bowl.
