Cumulus Table (2010)

Similar to how we created the Starlings Table, we used 3D animation software to mimic particle clouds that behave like gasses to generate a cloud-like coffee table. Clouds tend to become flat towards the bottom at a certain air pressure threshold and with a bit of imagination they form upside-down table compositions. The choice of material was important to me, as form and material are never separate. For the Cumulus Table we used a cloudlike Stratio Olympico marble, slightly translucent at the edges when lit by sunlight.
