Alexandre Chapelin and Patrick LaPierre collaborated to produce this series of remarkable furniture which they refer to as Lagoon Tables. Irregular marble blocks have been carefully filled in with blue-tinted liquid resin to create these shallow ocean environments.
Chapelin’s workshop is based on the Caribbean island of Saint Martin and the surrounding shallow waters no doubt inspired the coastal theme of his tables to an extent. The unpolished segments of marble can resemble rough chasms and coral reef formations, while in other table designs precise ocean depth contour lines have been chiselled into the marble for a more abstract aesthetic.
No prices have been revealed for any of LA TABLE’s past works and it’s safe to assume that they weren’t cheap. Every one of their lagoon tables is of course unique as no two blocks of marble are alike, although LA TABLE do indeed pride themselves on the bespoke nature of each piece.
We’ve featured other furniture with similar concepts in the past on Homeli, including the River Table Collection by Greg Klassen and the Abyss Table by Duffy London. However in my humble opinion Alexandre Chapelin and Patrick LaPierre’s Lagoon Tables are by far the best executed iterations to date.
