Irish furniture designer Martin Gallagher has created the Ardú console table, and will be exhibiting them at the Designers Block event in London. An incredible item capable of having beauty and strenght in the same item. So pure and so majestic. Something unique created by Martin Gallagher. See what you think about this amazing design.
Inspired by skeletal structures, Ardú is a piece of sculptural craftsmanship. Repetition of form creates a rib – like formation resulting in a piece of intricate beauty. The sculptural elements reminiscent of delicate bones and brass spacers evocative of the human vertebrae, create division within the rhythmic pattern, in unison forming the structure of Ardú.
Maple was chosen due to its light delicate properties. Glass was selected for the table top so visual connection with the configuration is maintained from all perspectives. Individual entities are combined to form one sculptural piece resulting in Ardú. The overall length can be modified by adding or reducing the amount of legs for each table.
Unique design with a fantastic inspiration, something out of the ordinary that will make you feel special. When creativity meets emotion this is the result. Majestic and amazing.
Martin Gallagher’s work is handmade and fuses together the basic elements of wood and glass using a combination of traditional techniques, modern forms and technology to create distinctive pieces of furniture.
A constant source of inspiration to him is the rugged landscape around where he lives and works on the North West coast of Ireland. Geometric shapes, clean crisp lines and repetition of shape and form found in nature are key themes in his work and Martin’s emphasis on using quality modern materials and colour give his work a fresh contemporary aesthetic.
