thethestore. introduces Dutch designer Bart Eyking’s new collection of coffee and side tables, ‘Upside downs’ for SS16, as part of Shoreditch Design Triangle.
Upside Downs consist of marble blocks floating on polished stainless steel frames. The minimal geometric frames perfectly balance the stone masses, deceiving gravity and revealing a unique upside down reality. These pieces echo the work of Belgian surrealist painter René Margritte.
EYKING’s collection of tables can be combined and arranged in various landscapes, resembling the chunky marble quarries of Carrara.
Born out of necessity for EYKING’s own home, these marble coffee and side tables come in different sizes and various types of marble, enabling the consumer to customise the pieces to their specifications.
