Holey Console Table - Allowing passage within and without.
Jason Philips's Holey console table is a study of matte vs glossy finishes. The form resembles liquid metal, and the centre compartment allows for the safekeeping of ‘precious items'.
Holey is a console table that employs both a resolved feeling and a separation of the ovular centre and the remaining bulk. The centre is a brushed metal while the rest is chromed. The play on form, undulating at all cross sections, the material changes, and the ability to place objects inside and out makes this functional and sculptural all at once.
Production will be limited to 5 pieces and will be created on demand. Advanced electroplating techniques will be employed. Size can be adjusted but proposed at 84x32x32"h.
