Ocean Memories, 2017

It was designed by Mathieu Lehanneur. It is dated 2017. Its medium is circular low table xxl.

Embracing the tension between solid and liquid states in nature, Mathieu Lehanneur’s Ocean Memories series consists of benches and tables made of sturdy marble or heavy brass with the dynamism of the oceans’ surface as its subject. Using CGI software to render lifelike undulations of waves, his pieces are machine-carved and hand-polished, reminiscent of a moment frozen in time.

It is credited Courtesy of the designer and Carpenters Workshop Gallery.
