This Resin and Fiberglass Table by Harow Replicates the Surface of the Moon

October 6, 2017

Kate Sierzputowski


Using digital files pulled from NASA’s archives, French design studio Harow designed a table that replicates the real topology of the moon’s surface. The Apollo 11 Table features a sculpted fiberglass slab in the form of a lunar crater. Covering this thick segment is a layer of resin, which allows one to fully view its dips and crevices while providing coverage to the uneven terrain. The brass and aluminum alloy feet also pay homage to the many Apollo missions, parts that put a modern spin on the Lunar Excursion Module‘s original landing pads.

You can view more of Harow’s designs, including these Apollo landing wall works, on their website and Instagram. (via This Isn’t Happiness)

Australian jewelry designer Britta Boeckmann (previously) is known for her fusion of resin and wood, creating pendants and rings that highlight the contrast between these two different materials. Some of her latest handmade works incorporate a mixture of opaque white and semi opaque blue resin with fragments of Australian Salmon Gum wood, giving the uncanny appearance of waves crashing on shore when viewed from above. You can see more of her recent work in her Etsy shop.

Unique Stool Design Utilizes Offcut Wood Combined With Resin to Eliminate Construction Waste

February 22, 2017

Christopher Jobson

Seeking a way to reduce waste as part of their industrial design practice, South Korean design studio HATTERN conceived of a hybrid resin and wood seating concept called Zero Per Stool. As part of the construction process the waste offcut from creating the legs are saved and then combined with resin to form the stool’s seat. The resulting objects have almost zero waste and appear visually unique from piece to piece—each stool subtly paying tribute to its own construction process. HATTERN also adopted the same process for a series of resin coasters that make use of scrap wood materials. You can follow more of their recent work on Facebook. (via Design Milk)

New Resin Mushroom Lamps Embedded with LEDs on Driftwood by Yukio Takano

November 1, 2016

Japanese artist Yukio Takano (previously) has a knack for recreating the delicate properties of mushrooms with dyed resins illuminated from the inside with hidden LED lights. The electrical components are then hidden inside real driftwood bases that sometimes incorporate a fancy retro “on/off” switch. Takano first exhibited his lights 12 years ago and they now disappear as fast as he creates them. Unfortunately, the pieces are too delicate to ship overseas, so he only produces and sells them locally.

You can see a behind-the-scenes tour of his studio here (in Japanese) and see more photos of his more recent works on Tokyobling, Silver Shell Gallery, and ocasionally on his blog.

Italian artist Annaluigia Boeretto (aka Annalù) imagines a world filled with liquid, where the pages of books or the petals of flowers seem to splash in every direction. The Venice-based artist works primarily with a form of resin to cast the delicate pools of water and glassy elements that comprise each sculpture. Annalù has an upcoming solo exhibition at East West Fine Art starting October 1, 2016, and you can see more of her work on Instagram. (via Lustik)

The jeweler Secret Wood (previously) has been producing even more miniature cities and landscapes, each ethereal universe living inside a resin geometric dome on top of their handmade wooden rings. In addition to buildings set against swirling skies, there are also works that contain tiny flowers, pieces that will eternally live on top of one’s finger. You can see more one-of-a-kind rings on their online store, Instagram, and Facebook. (via My Modern Met)
