Charlotte Kingsnorth, Holey Foam Table, Cast Iron Table



This work is a cast iron tall coffee or center table. There is lots of room for customization as it can be poured out in aluminium or bronze and go up to 28" overall or down to 20". The work ships in parts and the top and bottom are bolted together. Current finish spray is suitable for indoor placement only but outdoor placement would be possible with a different finish. Please inquire for additional details. Artist description of the work as follows: I was drawn to the visual functionality of ironmongery in the architecture of bridges, which has a deep history in Britain, dating back to the Industrial Revolution. Holey Foam Table was first realised as a 1:5 scale model made from foam sheets punctured with rivets. The model was 3D scanned and blown to full size, then sent as a digital file across the Atlantic, CNC cut into a mould and then cast into iron. It has gone through many stages of transition, from small to large, foam to iron, soft to rigid, light to heavy, from London to New York, and as a result there is a level of indeterminacy to the final piece. The table is heavy and permanent, a homage to archetype, like a statue, sprouting from the ground. It has a life beyond the designer not least because of its numerous transformations but also because it is cast from scrap iron, which has been melted and given a new form.

Customization Options

- Finishes: Iron, Bronze, Aluminum, Unsprayed, Permalac (for outdoor) - Sizes: Overall height range from 28" - 20" (potentially down to 18" if poured in aluminum). Work will not be rescaled, height will come off the base.
