This side table perfectly demonstrates Charles Trevelyan’s design from every angle. The severe and opposing angles of the legs creates a mass of negative space, which Trevelyan has filled with bold block pastel colour forms. The intersection of legs with the tabletop is met seamlessly yet unexpectedly. Contrasting the usual break in traditional table design, Trevelyan has allowed the forms to extend regardless of obstruction, creating a charming piercing affect. The form of this elegant table ceases to be ignored when using the table functionally due to the protruding upper forms requiring the user to consider its design.
Charles Trevelyan was born in Sydney, Australia, in 1974 and has lived and worked in London since 2000. His functional sculptural works fuse natural references with structural elements and use a variety of materials, such as bronze, aluminium, timber, resin and marble.
