The original inspiration for this designer console table came in the form of metal off-cuts used to make another Tom Faulkner piece. Spotting a series of negative shapes scattered across a sheet of steel, Tom began to experiment, piecing them together to form a cut-out table base. As the idea developed, Tom noticed that he was drawing inspiration from other sources. He noted the influence of Matisse’s iconic “Cut-Out” series as well as the stained-glass windows he designed for the Rosary Chapel in Vence, a place Tom has visited several times. As the console came into being, Tom was struck by the alter-esque quality of the piece – a fitting homage to its spiritual muse. The result is a unique and modern console table for a hallway, or stand-out feature piece for a living space or bedroom.
Tom’s designs often blur the line between product design and sculpture, much of his work heralding from artistic inspirations. We love this homage to celebrated artist Henri Matisse.
