Gary Magakis, Bronze Stacked Low Table, USA, 2016
The level planes of Gary Magakis’ handmade, unique Bronze Stacked Low Table reference the centuries-old stone walls that populate Magakis’ rural surroundings in Pennsylvania. The dense forms of the table are stacked in a cantilevered arrangement, lending the work a sense of weightlessness while enabling it to maintain a muscular visual power.
Since joining Todd Merrill Studio in 2013 Gary Magakis has built a cult-like following among top designers and collectors for his dynamic studio-driven metal furniture composed of seemingly simple geometric shapes.
When creating his bronze and steel sculptural furniture, Magakis looks to ancient metal arts, modern architecture, and the American Studio Craft Movement for inspiration. However, it is the work of Paul Evans that has left the most significant impression on Magakis. Evans’ unprecedented use of sculpted metal forms and patinated surfaces is reflected in Magakis’ Sculpted Metal series. Magakis’ distinct approach to design produces bold and dense geometric forms that exude a Modernist elegance and buoyancy.
As the artist works on a commission basis, custom dimensionality and finishes may be accommodated.
