Unveiled in 2010 in collaboration with Carpenters Workshop Gallery, Thierry Dreyfus's Hommage Table is an elegant and intriguing table made of two mirroring parts. The Hommage Table is a limited edition series of dark wood tables split by a golden scar, reminiscent of the light coming from an earthquake fracture.
"It all started from a technical yet minimal, constructive element: the IPN beam," the French light artist explains. "I chose a basic structural element, one that is usually hidden in the construction process, to structure the table and canalize the intensity that runs through it."
"On closer inspection, the table's giant crevasse - whose golden surface echoes the topography of the Himalayan chain - radiates so brightly that one looks for a light source. But there is none. 'Like a scar, the interstice never heals. The wound becomes precious, absorbs light, warms it up to concentrate and irradiate it,' Thierry Dreyfus adds."
