A piece of furniture that is much more than just a piece of furniture. We are all looking for meaning in things, concepts, emotions, and so on. Amarist Studio and Alejandro Monge have created an amazing art piece that will impress and surprise everybody that enters your sitting room. This is a contemporary coffee table with a design that will make you think. A pyramid of 50€ burning bills?
That’s what it seems to be inside of the glass urn and concrete structure of this surprising coffee table.
The artwork captures the moment of combustion of the banknotes, enhanced by a real flame burning from the top of the pyramid.
Of course that neither the money nor the ashes are real. Everything has been done with sculpting resins, paint, and paper.
However, it’s an amazing coffee table, with a “great visual power, able to stimulate the thoughts of the viewer” as the artist describes.
The artist explains that “one of the most interesting things about this piece is, in fact, to see the different reactions that cause on people depending on their culture and background”.
