Jupiter | Low Table - Acrylic
The Jupiter low table pairs STACKLAB’s signature solid-bronze Jupiter leg castings with a top of acrylic or Engineered Cementitous Composite (ECC). ECC resembles, but is more elastic and less brittle than, concrete, and better suited for the building of furniture. It uses recycled glass as an aggregate and recycled fiber as a reinforcing agent. This composition reduces to a half-inch the three-inch structural thickness required with conventional steel-reinforced concrete construction. Such performance makes it possible to use ECC as a skin around a lightweight recycled foam core.
The Jupiter leg is a study in creating a completely asymmetrical, yet aesthetically cohesive, geometry. The shape is readily castable, yet differs in every elevation, section and plan view. The sand-casting process produces faintly perceptible irregularities that enhance the leg’s tactile appeal.
The planetary name pays homage to the subtitle of Mozart’s last symphony, a favorite of the client who commissioned the first Jupiter table.
