Made with a Rock maple bowling alley slab and folded and welded mild steel, powder coated in matt ‘Yellow Gold’. Its Industrial aesthetic and heavy nature are contrasted with thin materials and tapered legs in an effort to lighten the overall feel of the table. The bright yellow colour choice contributes to its industrial aesthetic, referencing a colour very similar to that of safety, often seen in factories for its precautionary ability. In addition to this, the yellow legs also emit an enjoyable energy, which should offer itself to those who share it.
The thick slab of rock maple, formerly a ‘ten pin bowling’ aisle, sports several contrasting dots in a darker colour. The dots, which previously functioned as indicators for bowlers, now act as a reminder of the materials past life. In addition to this the bowling alley slab has laser etched sides, reading; ‘1963 Northcote Bowl – 166 Victoria Road’ in documentation of its specific former life.
