A collection of 3 hexagonal brass tables, designed for individual use, or interlocking in a group. The Basalt geometric tables create a sense of natural rhythm which suggests its source of inspiration, the Giant's Causeway.
All hexagonal prisms in shape, the three variations included in the 'Basalt' design vary in height, with the mid-height piece featuring cut away sides. Whilst making the table suitable for storage, this feature adds to the play of light and sense of space created by the mirrored brass. Hand built from reflective solid brass sheets.
The piece captures the Martin Huxford Studio aesthetic in its elegantly cast contemporary reflection of brutalist architecture and sculpture. This creative repetition is part of a move away in interior design from the straight forwardly stripped-back, industrial feel of the last year or so, and towards something more jewel-like, playfully embracing, not merely stripping back the surface.
Martin Huxford Studio's Basalt tables provide a weightiness in their monumental allusion retained from their brutalist influence, whilst harmonising any rawness, offering an addition to an interior which is not afraid to be bold and beautiful.
