Gareth Neal Louis Occasional Tables in American Walnut – Todd Merrill

Gareth Neal’s unique pair of occasional tables are carved using traditional cabinetry techniques as well as computer-driven routing machines. Neal begins his process with a 3D computer drawing, which allows the machines to carve the interior forms from a solid piece of wood. The shape that ensues is a delicate, elegantly curved side table reminiscent of a Louis XV occasional table. Then, Neal carves out new, organic forms, making obvious signification of the creator against the tables’ technologically driven symmetry. Neal’s Louis Series thus inscribes two time periods at once; while paying homage to Rococo design, he also deconstructs it and creates a new, calling attention to the technologically powered 21st century in which we live and create today.

Gareth Neal established his design practice in 2002 in the creative hub of East London. Since then, his repertoire of hand-made and technologically driven works has received critical acclaim and recognition in numerous publications and exhibitions worldwide. His George III chest of drawers resides in the permanent collection of the Victoria & Albert Museum in London and he currently released a collaborative line of sculptural vessels with Zaha Hadid.
