Stefan Rurak, Low Table VI, USA, 2022

Stefan Rurak’s Low Table VI expands the artist’s affinity for steel with a new form that juxtaposes buoyancy and rigidity. The low table consists of a magnificent slab of live edge walnut, three inches thick, curiously resting on an air-inflated-steel base. Balanced by a support foot of concrete and 23kt gold the work challenges perception by seemingly defying gravity. Todd Merrill Studio began representing  Rurak in 2019. His unique art furniture defies conventional boundaries – merging fine art aesthetics, modern conceptual design, and traditional, hand-made craftsmanship techniques.

Rurak draws no distinction between art and design – the utilitarian becoming a canvas for his aesthetic endeavor. Each work conveys movement, action, and intuition, providing a stark counterpoint to the meticulous construction and composition of the functional skeleton underneath.
