Thanatos Table

The Thanatos Table is inspired by morbid forms and structures at the end of vegetation during autumn.

It represents the result of an intensive one-year research and experimentation in mould making techniques. First, a fragile model from paper was made, after that the table cast in one piece in experimental moulds made from plaster.

For this piece, Philipp Aduatz developed his own material, a resin-marble composite, combining the material advantages of stone and resin polymers. The material is composed from cast resin filled with a marble powder additive, a waste product from marble industry and developed to be ultra-resilient and tough also over a very long time period.  Because it is cast in one continuous material, it can easily be refurbished by sanding and polishing as often as necessary. These properties together make it a sustainable and exceptionally long-lasting material.
