The voluptuous Aqua Table is an uninterrupted whole, a curious and curvaceous form that invites viewers to engage with it.
Standing as an impressive centrepiece it delivers a stylish focal point. The three fin-like legs of the Aqua Table appear to be in motion and register as gradients on the gently undulating tabletop. Eight coats of high-gloss automotive paint are applied and polished by hand to make a striking surface capable of reflecting light in flowing pools and waves. This design is challenging, daring and the work of one of the greatest talents the contemporary design industry has known.
