The Loop, Organic, Sculpted, Contemporary Sapele Drink Stand or Occasional Table

$3,075

About

This little sculpted drink stand, clearly organic, yet simultaneously abstract and Minimalist, expresses a surprising primitive energy and dynamism. Its two elements rise and pass each other without touching, seemingly on separate paths in what becomes a kind of dance. They could be plant forms emerging from the soil, or perhaps even a pair of cobras rising from the snake charmer’s basket to sway to the rhythms of his flute. The inspiration, equally surprising, was Vera Mukhina’s famous sculpture “Worker and Kolkhoz Woman.” This renowned Soviet artist presented it at the Paris International Exhibition in 1937, a highly idealized tribute to Russian workers and collectivized farm women. The basic lines of Mukhina’s work are the basis of the table’s form. It is an attempt to capture (without the propaganda) the same dynamic and youthful energy in a piece of functional modern furniture.

About The Maker

Thomas Newman studied art history at Swarthmore College and enjoyed making things in his father’s basement workshop. A self-taught woodworker, he has had a fifty-year career that began by restoring antiques. It was a lesson, not only in a wide range of woodworking techniques, but also in various traditional furniture styles. He developed a specialized table-making business and built more than 500 custom tables. Over this period his work has been featured by nearly every major design firm in New York City. Vladimir Krasnogorov joined the studio in 2001 and is the principal designer of its new line of sculptural, carved-wood furniture. He grew up in Almaty, Kazakhstan, and always dreamed of being a furniture maker. Coming of age during the collapse of the Soviet Union, he searched for new designs to liberate his creative spirit from the oppressive boredom of bureaucratic Soviet style. This led him to Kazimir Malevich’ Suprematism and the Russian Avant-Garde of a century ago. His work, in a real sense, is an echo of the revolutionary design ideas of that era, now set in a post-Soviet world. His designs reflect an effort to achieve balance, harmony and proportion in new forms for a vision that is entirely his own.
