100 Variation Occasional Table in Mirror Polished Aluminum by Jonathan Nesci

About

100 Variations is an installation by designer Jonathan Nesci at Eliel Saarinen's First Christian Church in Columbus, Indiana from 2014. The installation celebrates the legacy of architect Eliel Saarinen, and became the pilot installation for architecture biennial, Exhibit Columbus. One hundred unique, mirror-polished aluminum occasional tables were installed on the sunken courtyard lawn of the church, comprise the installation. First Christian Church, which was designed by architect Eliel Saarinen, was the first in a series of important architectural commissions in Columbus. The installation pays homage to the “Golden Ratio,” which Eliel Saarinen used extensively throughout his career, but especially in the interior and exterior design of First Christian Church. The interior sanctuary's golden ratio meets the church’s exterior golden ratio for the stairway and campanile, and the corner of this exterior ratio is where Nesci’s own golden ratio starts. The highly reflective surfaces of the tables also reference the reflecting pool that was originally a part of the church’s design, but was removed in 1957 due to ongoing maintenance issues. Nesci worked with Columbus-based Noblitt Fabricating, the same firm that was involved with the production of Jean Tinguely’s work Chaos I (1974), the centerpiece sculpture of The Commons in Columbus, to produce the tables.
