U&I Brutiful Table – 2019

The Brutiful U&I Table was influenced, in part, by a visit Suna and I  made to the architect Carlo Scarpa’s Brion Cemetery last year. Scarpa has all these moments of detailing in his concrete and stone – beautiful repetitive symmetries and forms which descend or ascend in depth. We adopted the motif in our design and added a flowing bent acrylic top surface which allows you to see into the interior of the table. There is both a hard and soft distinction between the outside and inside of the design – so the piece feels very differently when seen from different perspectives.
