Nikita Bettoni, 2016
An artefact made using metalbending, this is the fullest expression of the material in its natural state. Copper, brass and stainless steel illuminated with sparkling light. The aluminium legs are lathe turned, an ancient yet highly contemporary technique. The material is treated in its purest state to bring out its natural chromatic contrasts. The elegant lacquered wood and natural leather pad tidy provides contrast, that touch of necessary - perhaps inevitable -contamination.
