The Colander Table by Daniel Rohr

By Daniel Rohr
2009

Dimensions:
H 72.5 cm x W 160.5 cm x D 95.5 cm
H 28½" x W 63" x D 37½"

Hand Polished Milled Aluminium & Plate Glass
A Limited Edition of 8
Signed & Numbered 3

Colander was designed with a deep investment in the fundamentals of workmanship and also has a compelling storyline. Glenn Adamson, head of research at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London (The Art Newspaper, February 2013) notes that 'the most effective design narrative is that which is inscribed into the object's substance; in the process by which it was made.'

This table is the culmination of a year of experimentation with aluminium to achieve an optical illusion by deleting both space and material. By creating an empty space between the plate glass surface and the bowl of the table, and within the material itself, the 909 holes, the artist has created an illusion. When viewed from certain angles, the glass surface disappears becoming one with the mirror polished aluminium below and objects placed on the surface appear to float. The legs too, take up the theme with their vertically milled lines deduced from the pattern of the holes in the table, the light and shadow effect produced gives them the appearance of glass.

The Colander Table is significant in terms of re-thinking the possibilities of both the form and the material used.



As with the enthusiasm for plywood as a 'new' material able to be used in innovative ways in the mid 20th century, Rohr shows us here at the beginning of the 21st, new ways with aluminium. The hand polished cnc milling process is the only way to achieve the tautness of curve, precision of design and superb level of finish required to achieve this merging of space and material. This is a unique and beautiful design which transcends its traditional form and the time of its making; it luxuriates in the possibilities of the material and the ingenious process of its production.

The artist has fulfilled his dream; a museum quality piece of art/design furniture made without compromise.
