Escape Desk, 'Patagonia', Crushed Glass and Black Silica by Fernando Mastrangelo

Price Upon Request

About

A layering of powdered glass and sand, the made-to-order desk consists of gradients of tones and textures suggesting layers of earth, mountain ranges, otherworldly skies and bodies of water. The hand-dyed granules are stratified with delicate veins and ombre effects to create an organic piece of furniture as escapism

About the Maker

Fernando Mastrangelo Studio

Fernando Mastrangelo uses atypically commonplace materials – such as salt, coffee, sand, glass and cement – to cast sculptural objects that inextricably entangle fine art and design disciplines. Amalgamating commodity materials and pure geometric form, the works are intriguingly contradictory; they are both rugged and refined, durable and delicate, formal and functional. Precisely because of their hybrid natures, each work shatters the potential for contextual singularity. Instead, these free-standing and wall-hanging sculptural pieces resonate across a panoramic, multidisciplinary spectrum – spanning formal, social, historical, mathematical, and even religious subject matters. Mastrangelo enlists an unrelentingly fastidious fabrication process to achieve these liminal harmonies, through which he is able to expand our experience of everyday materials, granting them an otherwise unnoticed cutting-edge, sophisticated minimalism.
