Title: Deco Desk
Artist: French
French Art Deco furniture is characterized by sleek, smooth lines, geometric patterns, and an experimental use of industrial materials such as metals, plastics, and glass. The modern functionality of this French art deco desk is demonstrated by the simple shelves and drawer that blend into the side of the desk- staying congruent with the streamlined style of the piece. This desk was designed at the height of the art deco style, during the 1930s.
Title: Deliquescent Dining Table
Artist: David Cruz
Blackman Cruz Workshop USA, 2008 patinated and highlighted bronze, starfire glass With a narrative of coils or tentacle-like movement and fluidity, Cruz’s “Deliquescent Dining Table” balances grace and poise with a brash and vaguely uneasy exotic estrangement. A use of shell or wavelike motif seems referential to the stylings of Rococo and Baroque furniture, and the overall form takes on a figural silhouette not altogether removed from the kind of mythical winged lion or gryphon commonly seen within those eras. Such flamboyance is offset and balanced by the dulled patina applied to the surface of the bronze, and the sleek contemporary starfire glass tabletop. This is number twenty-six of an edition of fifty from the Blackman Cruz Workshop. The Blackman Cruz Workshop Deliquescent table has its roots firmly planted in the jocular stylings of the Rococo. The table presents a graceful fluidity that exudes sculptural confidence. Its unending shell-like curves that highlight the unique patina of this example underline the flamboyant nature of the piece. Louis XV would have been proud. - Adam Blackman This work is number twenty-six from the edition of fifty. Stamped with manufacturer's mark and numbered to base: [Blackman Cruz 26/50]. ***RESHOOT?

Title: Embryo Lounge Chair
Artist: Marc Newson
Perhaps the most iconic piece by designer Marc Newson, and a 20th century classic — the ‘Embryo’ chair design was first commissioned for the 1988 Powerhouse Museum ‘Take a Seat’ exhibition in Sydney. Newson frequently refers to the piece as one of the first to fully flesh out his now distinct style, the dissolution of sharp edges leaving a biomorphic and boldly extraterrestrial form. Three legs of chromed steel support the softly padded polyurethane foam body, the single piece covered in a neoprene fabric (more commonly used in wetsuits) to give a comfortable, fleshy contact.
