Below are images from smogallery at Design Days Dubai:
‘6302 spoons‘ sculptural wall lamp by NAJLA EL ZEIN
“The spoon is known to be one of the most basic, standard objects in the world often taken for granted in its everyday use. What happens if one decides to assemble thousands of them together? This sculptural wall lamp is the result of such an experiment. The spoons become a material in itself. The rudimentary transforms into a rich and unique material, taking here the shape of an aquatic, reptile-like skin allowing different reflections of light and movement. The spoon becomes beautiful, gains value and is seen from a totally new perspective”.
Metal structure, welded spoons
Limited edition of 3 pieces
H 170 cm x W 145 cm
‘Multiple’ magnetic coffee table by RAPHAEL CHARLES
Group of repetitive elements in solid beech, "glued" to one another by a magnetic system, which enables one to modulate the table infinitely. Depending on the different configurations, they will be assembled in order to form just one low table in variable shapes, or in separate, different islets to best fit the space.
