Normann x Brask Art Collection - Collins Side Table
Graham Collins has taken his later work as a point of departure and created a sculptural table for the Normann x Brask Art Collection. With its textural composition of woodworking, glass and automotive window tinting, the side table utilizes the same materials as his ’tinted monochromes’ series, reconfigured into a functional piece of furniture.
“In addition to making artwork, I also build furniture for myself, so it was very natural for me to design a table. Ordinarily, I am obsessively hands-on when making my work so this was an interesting exercise in just thinking about the design process. Art and design both influence each other a great deal; to me, they seem to have slightly different, though not mutually exclusive purposes. Both fields generate technical and critical dialogues, which are useful to the other.” – Graham Collins
Collins’ table features an irregular angular frame of solid oak, while legs galore give the impression of a creature about to wander off. Sheets of window tinting are layered in between a double plated glass tabletop, creating random creases and bubbles of air which add a free sense of texture to the visually sharp composition. The vinyl is placed in various arrangements between the glass plates, making every piece unique.
