Reconciled Fragments coffee table

9 Nov 2020 | Design

Beirut studio T Sakhi has designed a collection of green-hued coffee tables using resin, brass powder and marble offcuts to create the effect of « looking through a microscope ». Studio founders and sisters Tessa and Tara Sakhi created the series of furniture to give waste and fragmented materials a new life by combining them with a unifying component. The two-piece collection of tables, called Reconciled Fragments, is made of discarded pieces of forest-green marble found in a quarry and brass powder taken from local factories in Beirut, Lebanon, which were placed in a mould and set in place with liquid resin. For the two sisters, it was important to work with local craftsmen when creating the furniture.
