Cait Oppermann - Furniture
I’m excited to finally share some of the furniture I’ve been working on. I’ve been doing a lot of non-photo stuff recently and it’s nice to get excited about some of the stuff that I’ve wanted to do for a while, but haven’t let myself get caught up in.
Here are two tables that I sketched out a while back and have finally completed in the last few weeks.
I love making art objects that are also functional. The water in the legs of The Ozlöw Table can be switched out to fit a desired occasion. I stuck with red on all of the legs, but for a party, one has the ability to unscrew the legs from the cap and change the color of the water.
I’ve also been exploring forced functionality in that in my furniture projects I inject some kind of suggestion for how the furniture should be used. In The Black Cherry Table, I suggest that the Brooklyn Roasting Company lid be used as a drink holder. On other pieces, I’ve inserted a ring into the table’s design to urge you to hook your keys so that they aren’t lost next time you go searching for them.
I’m looking forward to posting more furniture here. And they’re all for sale! In my furniture, I attempt to create art objects that are both useful and affordable. A conversation-starter for visiting guests. Though each piece will have many similar iterations, all pieces are unique.
The Ozlöw Table - $125
The Black Cherry Table - $85
