Reflecting a stylized image of our world map, the Riva 1920 Earth table’s kauri continents float in the transparent ocean of resin. The use of the formerly liquid substance creates a fascinating interplay of light and shadow. The top sits upon a tubular base made from dark iron, with its welding clearly visible. Look at the photos of this gorgeous table, it’s just fantastic!
MANUFRACT creates handcrafted furniture out of broken pieces of wood which is form filled with an eco resin to establish its final shape. The collection was inspired by the process that trees go through when they self-heal as they naturally release resin to fix the wound. Here the resin fills in all of the cracks and crevices that were made when the wood broke.
By combining resin and wooden offcuts, Hattern created ZERO PER STOOL. The seat of the stool is made up of offcuts from the white oak legs that are then set within resin until it cures. The translucent resin fills the splintered gaps, becoming a one-of-a-kind work of art in the process.
Alcarol has just launched a fantastic furniture collection that has a strong wow factor. A part of this collection is FishEye, which is a set of stools using wood from Venice, where empty holes of the wood are filled with resin.
Working with transparent resin, Saerom Yoon designed a pair of tables where the clear resin takes on colorful gradients. The Crystal Series goes through a dying process that results in an optical illusion brought on by refraction and reflection, depending on how light hits it. The surface of the acrylic resin is dyed and once the pieces are glued together, the surfaces stick from melting, and the colors blend naturally.
Chimenti is the term for the gaps in ship’s planking and this name was taken because alcarol designers are from Belluno in the Venetian region. Venice sealed in a tabletop, Chimenti Table by alcarol comprises three planks, milled from Venetian bricolas, the iconic mooring markers, and sealed in a clear resin. Legs are folded steel sheeting. Such a table can become the focal point of any room where you put it due to the fantastic tabletop that reminds of the ocean.
Using natural stone and resin, Saint Martin-based designer Alexandre Chapelin created a pair of tables, called LA TABLE, that look as if you’re staring down at the ocean from an airplane window. The holes and crevices of the stone are filled with a blue resin to form a rectangular table that mimics a topographical look of an ocean.
Italian designer Marco Stefanelli presented a genial idea – to use wastes of a wood processing plant – pieces of wood cleaned from resins. In the cracks where there was some resin now there is light! LED light inside these cracks doesn’t interfere the harmony of nature, the soft light is very beautiful and relaxing.
Totally in love with these Resin Stools from Chen Chen & Kai Williams. They’re available in a tall or short version and each urethane resin top is handmade, meaning no two stools will be exactly alike. The legs are black powder-coated steel letting the colorful tops standout. You can snag them exclusively online through WorkOf.
Italian designer Gaetano Pesce likes to make experiments with modern materials like foam, resin or silicone. He manages to create unusual objects that are one of a kind. These 6 tables imitate different types of water bodies: a lake, an ocean, a river, a sea, a lagoon, a pond and a puddle. Each table has some special accessories that remind of each type of water surface: wooden platforms, some mountains and rocks, islands and trees.
