aduatz combines experimental furniture with traditional oil painting

combining different techniques and creative disciplines can lead to interesting projects. take the austrian designer philipp aduatz‘s’ canvas tables’ for example, a hybrid series that merges the craftsmanship of experimental furniture with the artistic tradition of oil painting. the shapes of the objects are made by resin molding on a plate and their outlines are formed according to the viscosity of the substance. the surfaces are covered with an oil paint, intended to evoke the soft fading of a gradient that can be seen in a clear sky. after the brush strokes are dry, another layer is applied in the form of a special transparent varnish to protect the staining and make the furniture suitable for everyday use. the steel legs below are connected to the plate by a fiberglass reinforced resin construction. the paintings are exposed to tent london during the london design festival 2014.
