RECONCILED FRAGMENTS

Coffee-table Collection

 

This collection is inspired by the the notion of decomposing materials as fragments in order to recompose them into one solid whole. “Reconciled Fragments” interprets this movement with gathered waste of Forest Green marble and aggregates of brass powder, from the surrounding local factories in Beirut, which they dispersed on a wooden organic-shaped wooden mold. Resin was later poured to unite the materials into one rich texture with an uncontrolled pattern. After solidification, the resin slate is cut into a 2 cm thickness and carefully hand-crafted to chamfer the edges of 5 mm, and allow a transparency in the material that highlights the different layers of depths of the aggregates. It serves as the top of the table that rests on an oxidized bronze or resin base.
