The Teâshí Coffee Table Is Given New Life by Artist Callen Schaub

Edenic Design released their first design, the Teâshí Coffee Table, and have since produced only 100 of the branching creation. Named after the Japanese word for “limb,” the table’s structure rises from the ground with limbs that could resemble branches, veins, fingers, or lightning bolts. Each table is welded by hand with care going into each piece to honor the original creativity that led to its unique silhouette. Beyond its intriguing structure, the Teâshí Coffee Table was designed with the intent of collaborating with artists who could take it to the next level. The first collaboration is with Montreal artist Callen Schaub, who brought his expressive style to the three-dimensional canvases seen here.

The vibrant, swirling colors look as if the paint is still wet and in motion, drawing the eyes with the movement as it flows around the base. The Callen Schaub Teashi 1 (CST1) is one-of-a-kind and with Schaub’s added treatment, it goes from just a table into a piece of sculptural art. While this particular table has been sold to a private collector, Edenic Design and Schaub will continue to collaborate on commissions on a made-to-order basis.

Edenic also collaborated with Los Angeles-based artist Chris Trueman, on Edenic x Chris Trueman 1 (CTT1), who used this opportunity to paint on a three-dimensional surfaces for the first time. He switched between gestural painting and spray painting with squeegees and brushes, which results in a dark cosmic-like finish with dark blues and fluorescent oranges.
