At first sight this sculpture seems mysterious and requires some explanation; that with a simple movement it unfolds into a dining table for ten and ten dining chairs. The intent for this design was to jettison the straitlaced appearance of a dining ensemble and the want for space i.e. the archaic requirement for a dining room.
The monolith is made entirely from sheet stainless steel. The table- top is attached to the base and lies on a bed of rollers. A custom-made hinge connects two plates that open out to a full sized table. The chairs are fitted with hinges - folding up for fitting into the table, folding down for sitting. The monolith is a quintessential example of the cross-over from art - design - function.
The monolith was made for a private collector in Paris, where it is now placed.
