Two organic forms crafted in ceramics and wood are brought together in this design, inspired by the ancient philosophy of Zen and the aesthetic of Japanese dry gardens - stylised landscapes of carefully composed arrangements, with gravel or sand raked in ripple-like patterns.
Three Reuleaux triangles in glass, ceramic and wood overlap to form the coffee table tops.
Beneath the upper glass top, graduating ripples in the warm-white ceramic radiate from the central brass disc – which is split into patinated and polished finishes.
The two functional surfaces are cast above the lower Reuleaux triangle, a CNC-carved English oak form in a simple wax finish.
The coffee table’s legs taper from the three tops, with a cross-section that mimics them. The legs are finished in a mix of patinated and polished brass with warm-white ceramic caps to the ends.
A rippled shell of warm-white ceramic in a glossy glaze is cast across a CNC-carved English oak form, in a juxtaposing simple wax finish. These two components are joined by a central brass disc, split across the divide with a polished and patinated finish.
