Metal table N°1 Sherwood

By Uglycute

In 2015, Uglycute created the interior for Woodstockholm, a combined showroom and restaurant in Södermalm in Stockholm. When the chambre séparée in the restaurant needed a door for a wine storage, Uglycute wanted to reevaluate the standard glass door with glued-on metal handles. Inspired by the Parc des Buttes-Chaumont (1867) in Paris and the “faux bois” (fake wood) technique, Uglycute sculpted a handle to mimic a grapevine, which was then sand cast in aluminum. The tactile handle gave birth to the idea of creating an entire table that could clearly manifest the aesthetic potential of relief or “alto relievo”, as opposed to the prevalent rational and smooth surface. In the summer of 2023, the prototype for Sherwood was acquired for the collection of Nationalmuseum – Sweden's museum of art and design.(photos by Jens Andersson)
