ICEBERG Stool & Side Table

• 1957
It was in Hawaii that Charles Keeling created the first observatory with instruments capable of measuring the rate of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. From then on, the Keeling Curve registered a constant increase in the concentration of CO2 in the air. This increase soon reached its apex, to such an extent that the climate became a real worry during the 1970s. Various reports written during this period agree on an increase in temperature, with melting ice caps the main consequence. In 2014, a study published in Geophysical Research Letters announced an irreversible reduction of the ice in western Antarctica, predicting the total disappearance of the glaciers within 200 years.

A resin and fibreglass assembly, the Iceberg is the embodiment of technical prowess. The creation of this piece requires certain procedures to be followed to the letter in order to guarantee success. Complex chemical reactions demand the creation of a confined microcosm, with the aim of generating a sterile atmosphere (a clean room) with a constant predefined temperature. One month is needed to produce each piece. The resin is dripped millimetre by millimetre in successive layers. The dynamic and thermal physico-chemical characteristics require a regular delay between each layer, for perfect polymerisation.
