For the 2019 edition of the Marmomac exhibition, Baxter proposes a project born from the suggestions created by the organic shapes of Le Corbusier’s architectures and, in particular, by the Ronchamp Chapel’s morphology.
The gentle curves, the concave and convex volumes of the building become a formal and constructive reference to design the table’s shape, conceived as a small piece of architecture.
The table’s shape is reflected in the legs’ outline, as if it was a projection of it. The blocks it is composed of are connected by an experimental polychrome “terrazzo”, carried out with resins and precious onyx.
All elements are connected by a “liquid” substance, just like in the antique Japanese “Kintsugi” technique, that is the art of repairing ceramic by inserting gold among the broken parts.
Art, design and architecture merge into a unique project.
