These tables are part of “The Umasi Collection.” This series is specifically designed to blur the line between furniture and sculpture-with perfect panels that collide into organic elements. Scrap steel, used telephone poles, abandoned trampoline parts, salvaged ship masts, old bicycle frames, crushed aluminum cans, and rescued beams from demolished buildings are the ingredients for this series. As a result, Umasi draws attention to what our society throws away and suggests other ways to use our debris. But it’s also a ready platform for other forms of social commentary, with references to art history, contemporary culture, and even the politics of war.
