Carpenters Workshop Gallery, New York, will present London-based Australian designer Charles Trevelyan’s “Fuse,” from September 13 through October 27, 2018.
“Fuse” features five new works — three tables and two benches — created with resin and Hotavlje stone mined from Slovenia, along with a selection of twelve recent pieces never-before-exhibited in the US. The pieces were conceived in Trevelyan’s London-based studio, and created and finished by the designer at Carpenters Workshop Gallery’s Roissy workshop in France.
The new works reveal the designer’s ongoing interest in scientific and engineering inquiry. “Developed via an iterative process of sculpted prototypes, these pieces explore Trevelyan’s interest in the seams and points of connection created when slabs of stone or resin meet. The indoor/outdoor Hotavlje stone benches are a study in cantilevered balance, smooth and curvilinear. The tables, rendered in wood and pastel colored resin, are angled and geometric with interlocking triangles of varied sizes, topped with a perfect circle,” a descriptive note on the exhibition by the gallery states.
