Desk With Rebar Frame Macassar Ebony Drawers And Custom Glass Top

$11,500

About

The Cleopatra Writing Desk is part of the Rebar series created by artist Troy Smith. Rebar is the steel used in the forming of concrete to give it strength. The rebar is heated with acetylene torches and red-hot forges. Skillfully sculpted by hand and with pneumatic machines, then powder coated. The rebar desk is integrated with Macassar Ebony in high gloss and a custom glass top that is 1" thick. The top has a texture on the bottom side of the glass that resembles melting ice. This feature lets you work on the desk without seeing every single fingerprint. The desk is a one-off creation that is very original and unique. The desk has two full-length working drawers with small rebar handles. Troy Smith is a Canadian artist, designer, sculptor and painter whose extraordinary art has garnered international attention. From notable galleries, private collectors, interior designers, architects and individuals who covet and curate innovative contemporary art. Using furniture to express his creativity, Smith's eclectic collection of works embodies meticulous craftsmanship and exceptional beauty. Troy epitomizes the definition of a modern-day Renaissance man, expressing his passion for all things beautiful. He travels extensively to international design and fashion capitals. He regularly visits world-famous museums, galleries and architectural landmarks to explore and experience emerging trends of iconic creations in art and design. These influences are a constant source of inspiration and apparent in Smith's furniture, abstract paintings and sculpture. Troy's creative process begins with hand-drawn conceptual sketches, transferred to professional shop drawings and then rendered in 3D to refine each design's form, material, function and intricacies. Troy uses artisan craftsmanship and luxury materials to develop proportion, scale and finish in an original design language. Curators, designers and private clients may commission one-of-a-kind pieces. Troy's furniture has been referred to as avant-garde, visionary and classic. There is intrinsic power in its simplicity, clean lines and fluidity, which is why Smith's exquisite statement pieces are destined to become design classics. His art has been featured in international design fairs, prestigious exhibitions and prominent design magazines. Each piece Troy creates fulfills his mantra, "You can't just create art, you must give it life."
