Heavy is a series of furniture that explores the relationship between form and material, blending the ideas of man made and nature. Inspired by ancient Dolmen structures and Brutalist architecture, the tables mimic the natural feel of the rocks used in the Dolmen construction and take cues from certain details used in the Brutalist movement. Each table explores the many textures, creases and shapes that occur naturally in rocks which is juxtaposed against an environmentally friendly water based acrylic resin material that encapsulates each piece.
Each object is hand shaped in polystyrene and covered in several layers of triaxial fiber mesh and hand coated in a environmentally friendly water based acrylic resin which helps give each tables strength and weight, and overcoated with duco spray.
Due to the hand made nature of the work, no two pieces will be the same and any natural irregularities should not be misconstrued as flaws, but rather the finger prints for this piece that makes it one of a kind.
