Home > Winners > #48604


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Green Pompeii

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Console

INSPIRATION:
Green Pompeii is nature's revenge on urban sprawl. The resin part symbolizes the green flood or green pompeii, while the vertical units represent the city being flooded by a green eruption.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
A limited edition (to 8) console, each unique, numbered and signed. From the concept of nature's revenge on urban sprawl, this console is a conceptual and experimental approach on what nature's revenge might be due to not being taken care of.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
This product is a piece of furniture inspired by a concept, which functions as a console. We hope this piece belongs to the grey zone between Art and Design.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in 2015, it was originally commissioned by Smo Gallery's collective exhibition, under the theme of "Revenge". The project was also displayed in Design Days Dubai in 2016, which attracted the crowd and was displayed in several reputable magazines. The project is a limited edition of 8 consoles.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
This design went through a challenging process, a lot of trial and error and went through much letdowns before it worked out. A very specific type of resin had to be used in order to be able to cast over 80 liters of resin in one shot without breaking. Top in crystal clear glass, base in oxidized brass, concrete, polished stainless steel, gun metal, patinated silver leaf, and crystal epoxy resin.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Dimensions: 180 x 46 x 88 cm.

TAGS:
console, design, furniture, modern, green pompeii, contemporary, interior design

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Many small mock ups were done to test the resin quality, resistance and compatibility. The challenge was much bigger when it came to the real scale prototype execution.

CHALLENGE:
The challenge was to find a concept related to our hometown over and bad construction problems.

PROFILE:
Over the last ten years, Georges Amatoury has made himself known for his refined and high quality work. He has managed to combine aesthetic enjoyment with functionalism in his designs. His creation process is a continuous back and forth between contrasted notions such as: hollow and solid, movement and stability, contemporary techniques and traditional craftsmanship, rough and polished finishes, mineral and vegetal materials, until a perfect balance is reached. Georges Amatoury believes that successful design is far from fashion and trends but is more about timelessness, identity and harmonious composition of lines and volumes. His signature studio line features elegant strokes sublimated by a careful selection of noble materials hand-finished with passion by skilled craftsmen. All creations are signed, numbered and dated on a brass plate, and will be complemented with a certificate of authenticity.
