Goldwater Coffee Table by Oliver Bowien

Home > Winners > #124372


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Goldwater

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Coffee Table

INSPIRATION:
The inspiration for this piece came from the surface of water creating a center piece that reflects an organic water-like surface in a luxurious way, an unusual shape that still has the benefits of being functional and could be integrated in to modern interior settings.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Hand molded, soldered and shaped by hand. This coffee table is mantled in brass sheeting, artistically laid over a hand-carved wooden frame with a top resembling the surface of water.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The surface is organically wavy but shaped in a manner where it is still functional. For example, a glass can sit on this table, the organic surface will make it stand on a light angle but not enough to tip over.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The design idea for this table originated in 2016 in Los Angeles but never came around to actual prototype production until January of 2019. It was first introduced to the public by Scala Luxury in Los Angeles in June 2020.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The base of this table is made from multiplex wood, cut and shaped by hand. The shape of the surface is carved by hand as well, the only way to create an organic and natural flow of water. The brass sheeting is the applied over the carved surface and molded, hammered and soldered to create the impression of a sold surface without any seams or connections.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Size: W 122cm x D 76cm x H 36cm

TAGS:
coffee tables, molded brass, organic shape, unusual shape, hand made, brass table

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Much research was conducted on how to create a center piece that is organically shaped to resemble the surface of water. A great deal of time was spent pondering over design methods and the actual construction of a piece that has no connections, seams or any visible construction. Extensive experiments were conducted on how to have this visual appearance utilizing solid brass sheeting and complicated welding techniques to achieve a seamless organic surface.

CHALLENGE:
The challenge on this piece was predominately the decision of what materials to use to create the organic effect of a water surface on metal to be floating all in one piece. Utilizing many materials such as resins, plastics, plasters, 3D printing, laser technologies and hand sculpturing to find the proper solution.
