Atang Tshikare 与Okha将玻璃和青铜结合,打造超凡脱俗的桌子
Atang Tshikare and Okha combine glass and bronze to create otherworldly tables

开普敦艺术家Atang Tshikare和当地工作室的Okha把厚玻璃插入坚固的青铜框架中,从而创造了这些形态独特的桌子,他们的设计灵感来源于非洲神话。

这两件作品起初发布于2016年迈阿密设计展上,分别是一张名为 Metsing的咖啡桌和一个名为Kaggen的边桌,它们是这位艺术家和当地设计工作室的合作作品。

Cape Town artist Atang Tshikare and local studio Okha combined thick glass inserts with solid bronze frames to create these tables, which are inspired by African mythology.
Originally launched at Design Miami 2016, the two pieces –  a coffee table named Metsing, and a side table named Kaggen – are part of an ongoing collaboration between the artist and the design studio.

该系列中的每件作品都来源于非洲神话中的一个人物。Metsing咖啡桌的命名来自于梭托人的术语“有水的地方”,它通过三个池状表面相互连接,从而形成桌面。

Kaggen边桌译为“螳螂 ”,设计中则参考了节肢动物的形状。

“相比起单纯的草图绘画,这些想法更需要扎实的文字功底与艺术情感。”Tshikare告诉Dezeen记者,“我们做的只是将非常抽象的概念转化成实物。”

Each piece in the collection refers to a character in South African mythology. The Metsing coffee table is named after the Sotho term for "place of water", and features three interconnected pool-like surfaces that form the table top.
The Kaggen side table translates as "praying mantis", which is referenced in the design's arthropodic form.
"The ideas came about from words and feelings rather than drawings and sketches," Tshikare told Dezeen. "It was about tuning in and translating an almost spiritual concept into something tangible and present."

这两件作品看起来像是悬浮在半空的水池,手工雕刻的框架与厚玻璃镶嵌物结合形成了桌子的表面形态。

框架布满生绿锈的青铜,设计师使用了一种叫做“脱蜡”的技术,用蜡铸的模子铸造金属。蓝色的玻璃看上去如水般纯净。

Both pieces are designed to look like pools of water suspended in mid-air, and feature hand-sculpted frames combined with thick glass inserts that form the tables' surfaces.
The frames are coated in patinated bronze and were made using a technique named "lost wax" whereby metal is cast in a wax-coated mould. The glass was tinted blue, to make it appear more like water.

“我们试图使用自然、美丽、坚固而精致的材料。”设计师告诉Dezeen记者,“我们将每个部分细细打磨与雕刻,让它们具有独一无二的灵魂。”

这两种艺术品都是由当地工匠手工制作,仅仅只有16件,Tshikare和他的妻子正在合作一部虚构小说,将于2020年发表,这两件作品也将出现在小说之中。

"We tried to use materials that were natural, beautiful, strong – and yet delicate," the designers told Dezeen. "We wanted to be able to physically sculpt and individualise each component of the pieces, making them truly unique."
Both designs were hand-crafted by local artisans and are limited to 16 pieces. They are part of an ongoing fictional narrative co-written by Tshikare and his wife, which will be published in 2020.

“在每个展览中,我都会展出新的作品,并将它们进一步阐述和延伸到故事中。”Tshikare说,“这个形式多样的神话将于2020年问世。”

Tshikare是Zabalazaa设计工作室的创始人,其之前的作品有:烧焦的木材和编织草制作的椅子。而Okha则是一家总部在开普敦的室内设计公司。

"With each show, I will present new works that elaborate and extend further into the tale," Tshikare said.  "This tale will continue through into 2020 with multiple works in various mediums, exhibited worldwide."
Tshikare is the founder of Zabalazaa Designs, whose previous work includes a chair made from scorched timber and woven grass, while Okha is a design and interiors company based in Cape Town.
