Scaffold table by Eddy Sykes for 1rstDibs

PINK3A copie

To celebrate our participation with 1stdibs during the 2018 Salone del Mobile fair this year, Eddy Sykes has created this one of a kind exclusive Scaffold table in Pink Rosa Borba marble. Made entirely by hand, by the artist himself, this solid bronze and marble table is truly a work of superb craftsmanship and design. Similar to his other Scaffold series in every way other than its unique provenance of having been crafted by one artisan from start to finish. The scaffold table is an homage to the unsung hero of sculptural and architectural infrastructure, made entirely of bronze and marble. True to the original engineering intent of traditional scaffold systems, the table’s marble platforms and solid bronze rails provide compression and tension to the frame.

Eddy studio. Founded in the early 2000’s by artist Eddy Sykes, Eddy Studio is a one man design practice hopping between Los Angeles and Mexico City. Extremely limited output is the hallmark of his studio as all pieces are made one at a time from start to finish by him. His so called ‘Vaudeville/Skunkworks’ aesthetic is a unique mix of influences thanks to Eddy’s childhood working in a small family run circus founded by his father in the late 60’s combined with his early professional work designing for nuclear and military industries. Eddy masqueraded as an architect/engineer for a while and gradually built up a small following of clientele. Fans of his unique design approach included carny geeks, bikers, Dotcom moguls and Hollywood types.

His work is truly his world, and as such, he believes that there is a premium placed on what you should spend your time doing, and therefore he does what he loves. “Keep an eye on Eddy Sykes, who could well be his generation’s answer to Buckminster Fuller.” – The New York Times
