Though innately functional, the STACK tables are floor-based sculptures that offset architectural principles with elegant design. Comprised of horizontal aluminum bars stacked in an alternating pattern, the tables’ structure is characteristically methodical and deceptively simple – a literal nod to the building blocks of architecture. As the viewer moves around each work, the textural contrast of the bars’ hand-brushed patina and colorful lacquered interior produces a distinct visual rhythm, the interplay of shape and space yielding an ever-evolving composition dictated entirely by the viewer’s perspective. Interactive in both design and effect, the work ultimately functions as a pretext for a sensory – and subjective – viewing experience, its meaning defined less by its fixed physical makeup than the varying circumstances in which it is perceived.
