Quark Bronze

2014

Limited Edition

7 + 2 AP

The Quark series of low coffee tables blends the exploration of materials with production techniques, to give birth to unique monolithic tables. The series’ name is a reference to a type of elementary particle, a fundamental constituent of matter.
Quark tables became the pretext to explore prime natural materials from their extraction to their transformation and to challenge each production stage. The knowledge acquired through this experience made it possible to develop an inclusive path, conscious of territorial reality and skills, where the project definition came to life through direct contact with the field. This piece is an exploration of bronze which for centuries has been the material of choice for cast sculptures of many of the greatest artists.
Each version explores various finishes, offering different results for each specimen, enhancing the oneness of this production and the infinite identity they can reflect.
The variety of the project reflects the diversity of humankind, in its traditions and abilities. For the designer, it is a passionate challenge each time, to combine traditional craft methods with the use of digital tools that are useful in reproducing the perfect grace of the Quark table curves.
