sment - gestalt
Frederik Bogaerts and Jochen Sablon take materials under their skin to feel, become and be it. Demolish, deconstruct and reassemble it. To finally gift the cleared material with a design that uplifts but not outshines the material. A Sment design is handcrafted and gives matter the well deserved pedestal that is both functional and sculptural.
Gestalt low table
Gestalt low table is a barrel full of well matched contradictions. Both brutal but elegant, heavy but light and functional but sculptural. Sment made sure no feature on Gestalt is lavish by ruling out every idle detail, leaving Gestalt being the embodiment of its most important characteristic: concrete.
Sment took on the challenge to create a concrete low table reduced to it's fundaments through thorough exploration of the matter.
The choice of pigmentation and negative space give the concrete table a surprising lightness and makes every piece unique. The organic round shapes make Gestalt a classic example of a coffee table and makes the colour play coming to its own perfectly.
Gestalt is positioned low to the ground, making it a prominent object you can’t ignore. Because of the shape and well finished, terrazzo bottom of the deconstructable table, the tabletop can be put on its side to serve as a mere object in the room.
Gestalt low table is the result of mass meeting grace.
