Liquid Geology by CAN
Felix Speller

Can has created a collection of three tables that explore ideas of scale, texture and materiality.


The project was inspired by rugged coastal scenery, underwater deep-sea landscapes and Claude Monet's 1880s paintings of sunrise and sunset on the River Thames.

Can draws on the rich detailing and colouring of the Impressionist's works alongside its own ongoing research into geographic contexts to produce furniture with an otherworldly feel.

The end product sees a reflective, lightly undulating surface like that of a lake which appears to float on rocky underwater outcrops, resulting in a collection of sculpture-like furniture designed to intrigue.


This project has been longlisted in the furniture design category of Dezeen Awards 2022.
