Victor’s love of wood is palpable in this quietly expressive piece. The strips of wood used in this table are played off each another, bringing out the shade and texture distinctions in each piece, while elevating their individual qualities into the elegant earthiness of the whole.
Working with geometrical shapes, the artist has created a timeless table. Like others of his popular pieces, this table draws guests toward it, with the curves that look made for chair placement. The signature flow is dominant here also, as one can imagine the top surface as like an infinity pool - in this case with the warm wood slowly spilling over the top and gently down the sides.
Using beautifully rendered strips of red cedar, the artist has transformed a square table into a flowing form. The layered aesthetic give this attractive and functional design great appeal. It would fit handsomely into a large range of interiors.
A simple homage to the African drum, this piece transcends the ordinary. The strip technique used here draws the eye around the sides of the drum, giving it back its musical movement. The smooth flat top has a slightly reflective quality that together with the tapered sides, creates a quiet and contemplative mood.
