Canvas Tables Design Process


The concept of the Canvas Tables by Austrian Designer Philipp Aduatz is to combine experimental furniture with a traditional oil painting technique. The idea is to use the top surface of a unique table as a canvas for an artwork.
The shape of the tables is produced by moulding resin on a plate and the outline of the tables is formed depending on the viscosity of the resin.  Then the tables are painted with oil-based paint, the motive for the paintings is the soft fading of a gradient like it can be seen in a clear sky. After the paint is dried the surface is coated with a special clear lacquer to protect the oil color and make the table suitable for daily use. The steel legs underneath the table are connected with a fiberglass reinforced resin construction to the plate.
