The table « Nature synthétique » is the second project of the plastic research group GABUZOMEU, founded by Damien Gernay, Magali Vernier and Olivier Pitot.
This table evokes the meeting between nature and industry.
The details of this item refer to the industrial processes used in the manufacture of « cheap » serial products and the resulting traces of manufacturing.
The contrast between the natural and ersatz model is shaped in this paradoxical object: polyester to show natural reliefs, an accidental slip of the two molded parts and their symmetry, paint gun to instantly give a realistic side .
An embossed tree bark molded by the underside of the table is transparently visible as if we had folded a tree to force it into an industrial mold. Only a footprint from nature remains.
