Meet the Designer: Robert Brown
Right before the sale I got a chance to talk to Robert Brown, the designer of the Shibumi Table, Lot 348. Robert suggested that this table was his signature piece, being that it embodies his mantra to leave the viewer questioning his construction. At first glance, The Shibumi Table appears to be standing on only four small points, which seems to be impossible. However Brown constructed the table to be supported by hidden dove-tail joints and anchoring. Brown said that he loved to keep people guessing, especially architects and engineers. This table sold in the sale yesterday, and Robert Brown got to watch his creation go to good hands. We are all happy at LAMA.
