The Kubrick Table
Edition of 8 + 2 AP
Material: Honed Thassos Marble
Size: L140 x W140 x H30cm (Tabletop)
Brooksbank & Collins’ Kubrick Table is named in honour of legendary film director Stanley Kubrick, 1928 – 1999, whose visionary oeuvre includes the science fiction classic 2001: A Space Odyssey.
In their design for the Kubrick Table Tom and Allan have explored their fascination with the visual language of science fiction and in particular Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. The Kubrick table is composed of four individual egg-like spheres intersecting a circular disc. Each of these geometric elements is carved from pure white Thassos marble and, as a whole, the Kubrick table possesses an ethereal glow redolent of a serene white space craft traversing the vastness of space.
Thassos marble is quarried in the beautiful island of Thassos, located in the Northeastern part of Greece. The island derives its name from Thasus, brother of Europa and King of Phoenicians, who settled in the island after Zeus kidnapped his sister, to find solace in the natural beauty of the setting.
