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 offcuts of stones and aggregates of brass powder, from the surrounding local factories in Beirut. We later disperse and scatter them on a flat wooden organic mold to create the shape as a canvas. Once laid, resin is poured into the mold and solidified with a propane heating torch to unite and cure the different materials into one rich texture with an uncontrolled pattern. When hardened, 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, brass or copper legs.
