Redemption Table


American designer Christopher Kurtz has created ‘redemption’ table for New York based manufacturer Matter. A reference to the religious woodworking of the Baroque and late Middle Ages, this lindenwood table upholds traditional values of craftsmanship with hand-carved hollow legs and funnel-shaped voids in its top. For reference, the designer studied the wood carvings of old masters Tillman Riemenschneider and Gringling Gibbons,  for both their literary narratives and their techniques. ‘The exactitude of these carvings, paired with religious narrative, creates a powerful aura that I wanted to channel with this work,’ Kurtz explains. via
