This collection focuses on collecting and recycling decomposed and fragmented materials in order to recompose them into one solid whole. This concept is influenced and inspired by the sister's city, Beirut, which has been deteriorated and reconstructed several times.
“Reconciled Fragments” interprets this movement with gathered off-cuts from marble and stone, as well as aggregates of brass and copper powder from the surrounding local factories in Beirut. As on a canvas, later disperse and scatter on a flat wooden organic-shaped mold, to create the shape.
Once laid, the resin is poured into the mold and solidified with a propane heating torch to unite and cure the different materials into one rich texture with a random pattern. The hardened resin slate is then cut into a 2 cm thickness and carefully hand-crafted to chamfer the edges of 5 mm. Thus, it allows transparency in the material that highlights the different layers and depths of the aggregates and stones.
It serves as the top of the table that rests on oxidized bronze, brass, or copper legs.
