miriam loellmann presents:
'i discovered the concrete cubes by chance in 2014, when i was making concrete samples for a commissioned work. shortly thereafter, the concrete cube table was created, again by chance and very spontaneously, while i was cleaning my studio and temporarily needed a place for the many concrete cubes i had produced so far, and finally placed them on a small table that currently had no surface tiles, where they fit perfectly, as if it were made for it. i started to use this small table in my daily life to put down my coffee, for example, or to put a magazine on it, and was fascinated by its beautiful effect, charisma and originality. i then thought: 'this little table has potential. i want it to be able to fascinate and delight other people as well.' it took a few years before i really decided to make this table for sale.'
'the concrete cubes tables are handcrafted on demand as unique pieces in my studio in Rio de Janeiro. the production of a table takes about 20 to 30 days. the size of each table is 56.5 x 56.5 x 56.5 cms and it weights about 22kg. the steel base is made by a local welder with whom i have been working faithfully since 2016.'
'this unusual sculpture-like piece is both a work of art and a small table for use or decoration. its main feature is the uneven surface, which resembles stones, and when touched gives a very stimulating experience. the little table is particularly charming when something lies or stands on it and there is a play of colors and shapes between the objects on the table and the table itself. it radiates calmness and simplicity and brings joie de vivre and refreshment to any ambience.'
