Designer Lars Amhoff of The Substain sent this awesome piece over.
The tabletop is made from a massive piece of acorn wood, crafted out of a full plank. The wood is finished smoothly and coated with a clear protective coating, to protect the wood and art against fluids and scratches. Topped off by a hand-screen-printed piece of art, done by McBess. Held is the table by four heavy duty legs, hand bent and welded from rough steel. Finished with a clear coating to prevent rust. The legs are bolted into the wood by 2 thick 8mm screws. They can be taken on and off for transport and shipping. The size of the table is 90x55x45cm, which is the size of a coffeetable. “
The overall graphic impact, evoked through the distinctive silhouette and angular black ash wood legs, add the sophistication of furniture to an iconic game often overlooked and undervalued. BLACKOUT elevates the former basement novelty to the conversation piece in any environment, allowing those late night hours to happen beyond the local dive bar to our favorite social spaces.
Now that DOT has fully captured our attention with their first collection, which includes a fat, whimsical, bird-shaped feeder called the cipcip, sweet, buoyant porcelain candleholders that resemble paper boats, an a cutting board they call the ovetto that allows us to chop both meat and veggies on the same surface, they give us the unvase. The decorative piece uses two separated pillars to create the illusion of a vase between them. Each of the black-and-white ceramic pieces is a vase unto itself, and not only provides the optical illusion, they’re also a nice way to show off two bouquets of flowers.
