Side or End Table with Cast Glass Top on Charred and Carved Reclaimed Wood Block
By Rafael Prieto
Located in New York, NY
One-of-a-kind side or end table in hand-carved and charred reclaimed wood with cast glass top. Fueled by curiosity while pushing function and materiality to its limits, this piece would make an evocative yet understated sculptural accent to your design project. The table is grounded by a solid block of expertly-crafted reclaimed pine; sourcing wood that was previously used is the designer’s preference as a sustainability practice, as well as for the richness of character only found in repurposed lumber. The wood block was hand-carved to cradle a volume of crucible-poured glass, cast in a mold made from a granite landscaping boulder. The glass “stone” is a subtly naturalistic design detail, retaining the course surface texture of a boulder, yet entirely transparent. This piece debuted at Design Miami, in December 2023. The edition shown here is available now, with forward editions shipping in 10-12 weeks.

Stone Top Coffee Table on Wood Block Base with Cast Glass and Ceramic Details
By Rafael Prieto
Located in New York, NY
The centerpiece of Rafael Prieto's debut solo exhibition in 2023 was the "Low Table," a one-of-a-kind work comprising four of the elements Prieto selected to express a sort of spatial poetry through materiality—wood, stone, glass and ceramic. Each material undergoes an individual finishing process to become united in singular form, the disparate entities creating asymetrical balance and contrasting textures pleasing to both the eye and the touch. The slab top is blue sandstone, with rough hewn hand-chiseled edges that ripple with energy. A hand-broken fragment of white-glazed ceramic tile, cast from a mold made using the denim jacket of the designer’s partner, is inlaid into the stone, adding an element of romance and another layer of tactility to the overall piece. The sandstone slab rests atop two solid blocks of expertly-crafted reclaimed yellow pine; sourcing wood that was previously used is the designer’s preference as a sustainability practice, as well as for the richness of character only found in repurposed lumber. One of the wood blocks was hand-carved to receive a volume of crucible-poured glass, cast in a mold made from a granite landscaping boulder. The glass “stone” is a subtly naturalistic design detail, retaining the course surface texture of a boulder, yet entirely transparent. This piece is a unique object of functional art that is conversational in nature, making it the ultimate centerpiece for collectors of contemporary design to treasure for years to come.
