Set of 2 After Ago Side Table by Richard Yasmine

$8,319.97per set


Set of 2 After Ago side table by Richard Yasmine Materials: Foam, Lightweight concrete, plaster, acrylic Dimensions: H. 82.5 x W. 55 x D. 72.5 cm After Ago is an ode to an arch, a tribute to a city, an elegy of lost souls, altogether converted to emotional fantasy objects, transmitting functionality however remaining timeless and sculptural. It’s a hybrid collection inspired from the metaphorical Postmodernism/Memphis movement with a twist of graceful Art Deco lines assorted to monolithic Brutalism sobriety. Always trying to promote exactly how using simple lines can create an infinite range of objects constantly thoughtful and minimal. “AFTER AGO” is handcrafted and painted using multiple materials such as foam, lightweight concrete plaster, acrylic and stone ware/clay. Experimenting through sketching, rotating and flipping arches evokes transformational prominent and bold shapes using different geometrical procedures such as inserting, intersecting, extruding, and detracting, these tools assist the process of embracing the splendor of the curves…Generating a seat, a shelving unit, a table, a tray, a vase etc… The alteration between drawn black and white stripes on each side of the object translate a dramatic illusion of the internal and spatial chaos , Black color is mysterious it is associated with the unknown future, the undesirable or sad past while the white is considered to be the color of serenity and safety. Black traps space, while white opens space. Black evokes sophistication the white communicates innocence and renewed beginnings. The objects induce an emotional alteration of the self, sad/happy, mad/sane, anxious/calm, death/life hate/love…., just like the fascinating history of my city Beirut with its multiple lives and layers throughout centuries yet after each disaster it always rises from the ashes longing for eternal life. Richard Yasmine a Lebanese interior architect and product designer, filled with imagination using his imaginary world as a simulation to try out new ideas and create new objects inspired of life, objects and emotions, the human body: physiology and needs, but also focuses on internal chaos combined with a certain innate sensitivity, sometimes extreme and provocative or even not expected by others but still minimal, bold, and straightforward without disguising or hiding true reality. He never tends to identify the difference between reality and imagination this what helps him creating intriguing and controversial design objects yet complicated in the process of production however this is distinctive in his personality. Trying always to incorporate a fresh approach sticking to his culture and tradition, frequently in a muddled process but a precise immaculate result not following any specific period or trend but a reflection of his own image. Integrating the Middle Eastern specifically the Lebanese knowhow and spirit within the recipe of each of his products; collaborating with craftsmen, consequently to reveal the oriental feel through an extravagant aspect, searching to spread the marriage between tradition and new technologies, by keeping his signature identity of commotion mixing craziness to sobriety with a touch of fantasy.

About the Maker

Galerie Philia Furniture

Galerie Philia is an international contemporary sculptural design and art gallery representing emerging and established designers and artists. The gallery is the brainchild of two brothers who share a lifetime passion for art, literature and philosophy. Their distinct academic background sets them apart from their peers, as it sees them following a rhizomatic and transcultural approach in the way they select works. This involves combining elements from multiple cultures in what becomes a network of harmoniously interconnected roots, ultimately revealing the beauty of each unique creation. The gallery’s non-hierarchical curation sits apart from the ephemerality of trends and focuses instead on the true aesthetic quality of the piece – alluring and timeless. Unlike others, Galerie Philia does not focus on a single style – whether minimalist, organic or raw – but rather embraces heterogeneity. The Galerie Philia takes pride in discovering new talents, providing them with multiple international platforms to showcase their latest creations. As well as propelling the newest generation of 21st century collectible design, Galerie Philia also works with internationally known design artists. Galerie Philia has a strong international presence, with galleries in Geneva, New York and Singapore. In addition to their permanent spaces, the gallery organizes temporary group exhibitions and artists residencies in first-class locations around the world.
