From Object to Performance

A bar top made by pouring.

Layers of fast-hardening fluid are poured in 6 metre long runs across an immaculate surface. As the viscous material hardens, enforcements are added to brace the giant slab, the first pours becoming buried under its foundations.

At last, when it is made sturdy and rigid, the slab is flipped in one choreographed motion, revealing the smooth plane of the first poured layers, blobs, runs, drips and puddles, tracing the path of the gesture with which it was made.

The bar top, made in situ, is mounted onto a wooden structure, a temporary pop-up bar with an expressive and accidental top. Commissioned by the Corinthia Hotel, London, the temporary bar hosted several parties including the Bafta Awards and London Fashion Week events.
