Plote Side Table in Scagliola, Cement for Indoor or Outdoor by Mtharu

$3,000per item


This listing is for the Plote table in cement and latex 19.5" diameter x 18"height. The child of an extruded hexagon and a cone, the Plote table is a mathematically derived design through the manipulation of Photogrammetry algorithms. The fabrication of the table happens through a post-digital process of digital and human making. The textures and patterns currently seen on the table are through the appropriation of an ancient technique called scagliola whereby plaster would be used to mimic marble through the use of pigments and additives. In the case of our design, we have used the scagliola technique with materials such as cement, latex and basalt in order to define a new materiality. The end result is the concrete table or stool that can be used indoors or outdoors. It is extremely lightweight and produces a sense of comfort in its surroundings. This design can be pigmented in different colors and solid colours and it is fully customizable. For the scagliola version, any color palette is possible.

About the Maker


MTHARU is an art and design studio, a materials research lab, and a manufacturing company based in Calgary, Canada. Since inception in 2013, the studio aims to create unique tools through material research, and deploy them at various scales to create functional works of contemporary art as furniture and lighting. After graduating as a mechanical engineer in 2008, Sumer immediately set out to explore his yearning for design and completed the Master of Architecture program at the University of Calgary. He studied anything he could fit into his schedule including jewellery, textiles, industrial design, casting, metals, and wood. The studio name, MTHARU, comes from designer Sumer Singh's ancestral heritage, meaning sword hilt maker. With a 500 year old lineage of artisans, creativity and making is deeply rooted in Sumer's bloodline. The products created at MTHARU blur the lines between art, architecture and engineering. The materials used are often left in their raw state and only natural products are utilized. With no particular genre to categorize the end result, the designs are strongly based on the idea of true-making by purely using material attributes to achieve the form and function.
