In creating this collection, designer Brad Ascalon was inspired by Atlas, the Greek mythological character condemned for eternity to carry the heavens on his shoulders. Translating this into a physical object, Ascalon was intrigued by the challenge of making an elegant frame that could carry the weight of solid stone. Atlas is available as a coffee or side table.
The Atlas Side Table features a chamfered marble top resting on a brushed Brass structure with Oak clad feet. The tabletop is offered in three marble types: Calcutta Gold, Pietra Grey and Nero Black. The base is also available in Stainless Steel. Dimensions: 16" diameter, 18" tall.
HUXHUX Design. These unassuming and quiet pieces claim a presence in their surroundings precisely because they interact through form, light and shadow. Colored light spills from the reductive voids onto the floors, walls, and ceilings, necessarily altering any space into which they are placed. Nugget Hollow was developed as part of a charitable design project. All of the designer's profits from sales of these pieces will go directly to benefit DIFFA: Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS. HUXHUX Design uses social design as a motivating factor in developing this line of furniture. These pieces are made by hand in HUXHUX Design's NYC-based studio. Nugget Hollow is made of Birch solid core slabs and is finished in both a carbonized and distressed white-washed exterior. The interiors are finished in bright colors of Acid Green, Sky Blue and Nu Orange. The edges and exterior finishes on each piece reveals the hand-crafted process, adding nuance and detail to an otherwise perfect geometric form.
