“Too much?” When Art and Design become one, by Atelier Amarist.
AMARIST atelier crosses the line between Art and Design with one of their most provocative creations: “Too much?” A sculptural table for unique spaces. In collaboration with the artist Alejandro Monge, this functional sculpture seeks to provoke a deep thought on the viewer about the volatility of money.
What is the value of money?
“An euro bill by itself is a mere tinted paper representing a figure; 20, 50, 100 … and has no more value than the time invested to get it. We just seek to exchange it for a desired object or experience “
Out of this meditation we created our unique project “Too much?”. A piece of art transformed into an original dining table made of a glass cube containing partially burnt 50 €uro bills and with a thin biofuel flame rising above its surface. Where the artist reproduced meticulously banknotes from paper using a hyper-realistic technique, and simulated the effect of the burning fire sculpting and petrifying ashes with resin.
A blend of art and furniture for unique spaces.
