Dime was inspired by the emotive and long art-historically studied shape of the circle. It is a dynamic piece evoking a spinning coin, but also physically the individual rosewood compound curved segments glide and shuffle to reveal its function. The piece when closed has a poetic repetition of form, softened by the luminous rosewood. As you guide the curved segments from the handles they have a pleasing resistance. The individual shapes interact to create micro-sculptures where the rosewood leaves meet and extend. The aesthetic outcome of the work was actually led by the design process, with the outcome of repeated geometry creating this illusion of movement and half spherical shape. The edges of the rosewood leaves are painted in a high gloss which segments and highlights their shape. The playful shape allows the user to hide or reveal the work-top and storage solutions. The works have hidden electricity points to enable the use of electrical appliances, with shelving and a curved drawer for storage. The worktops are made of black and gold Italian Portoro marble. The door handles are made of cast steel and directly echo the shape and design of the whole piece. Dime is available in an edition of 24. They can be installed individually or as a group and can function in myriad ways, a sculptural bar, additional worktop space for preparing food, marble surface for rolling pastry, a self contained coffee bar, workspace, writing desk, or a beautiful discrete flexible work area wherever it is needed.
