Conceived to complement the meditative setting of an art gallery, the Muse Series stands out by its subtly complex yet unified approach to form and function. As functional objects, the works respond to practical needs along with an elegance of form which manages to be both beautiful and gently discreet.
Named for the client, this table was first commissioned to be used as the front reception desk in an art gallery. A second version was subsequently commissioned for use as a dining table in her city apartment. Eventually a third version was commissioned for the family home in upstate New York. The design follows a strict yet simple geometric scheme. The skirts and legs taper inwards at set angles, resulting in seamless joints that come to a point at the four corners. Visually minimal, this construction still allows for an extremely rigid structure. Moreover the design of the table results in an efficient use of materials and minimal overall waste. Designed in collaboration with Jude Heslin Di Leo.
The Mirabelle Table was featured on the cover of The World of Interiors and selected for exhibition at Brooklyn Designs and Design Within Reach: MODERN + DESIGN + FUNCTION
