A dining table boldly occupied the interior, its sinuous solid bronze base expressed the liquidity of the metal casting process and the convergence of organic forms inspired by the natural world. At once aqueous, serpentine and skeletal, the base was hand-finished to grant it a burnished patina and topped with silvered American Oak, drawing on classic materials that have an enduring presence.
Conceived as an abstracted dining arrangement with a running centrepiece comprising a series of polished bronze sculptures, they were elevated from a scattering of remnant bronze and brass offcuts like treasured artefacts. Set against the rougher articulation of scrap metal, the lustrous sculptures invited contact and interaction, cranked and carefully suspended as if about to fall. The tonal hues of Greg Wood’s abstracted landscapes completed the aesthetic tableau.
