Brooksbank & Collins designed the Boullee Table, a futuristic piece named in honor of neoclassical architect Etienne Louis Boullee. Three structural elements, a sphere, disc, and axial base, join together in accordance with the movement of the heavens. The design duo were inspired by their childhood fascination of the mechanics and materials that were involved with space exploration and built the sculptural table to reflect that.
The design definitely makes you think of outer space and perhaps Saturn, with the rings winding around the tabletop and sphere.The metallic surfaces, polished mirror and acid etched stainless steel, create an ethereal feel, much like space would.
The sphere comes in black, brass, or a mirror polished finish. Available exclusively through Gallery FUMI.
