Brooklyn based designer Takeshi Miyakawa has just completed a new table for the gallery Salon 94 Bowery. Titled “Still De Stijl,” the round table pays homage to the early 1900s Dutch art movement (also known as neo-plasticism) by incorporating channel-shaped legs of different sizes. The unique, colorful design is a clear throwback to the geometric and asymmetrical qualities that are so iconic of painters like Piet Mondrian.
The legs of the round table are finished with casted epoxy mixed with fluorescent green pigment – the same color as his client’s logo. “Epoxy casting is really time consuming since I can only do one surface at a time,” says Miyakawa. “However, the result is quite beautiful. You cannot achieve this depth by just painting a color.”
