Morpheus Table by Jason Phillips Design

He’s one of our favorites – Jason Phillips, son of co-founder and designer for The Phillips Collection, debuts his beautifully ingenious Morpheus Table. He states:

“Morphing is a special effect where changes in an object are made through seamless transition.  Using modern digital techniques, a distortion is achieved by marking corresponding points and vectors on the various surfaces.  Morphing algorithms continue to advance and many programs can automatically morph images that correspond closely enough with relatively little instruction from the artist.  The result is a fluid design with interesting yet balanced curvatures.

The Morpheus Table is a cocktail-sized occasional piece that uses a liquid metal technique to achieve its surfacing and finish.  A matte nickel surface takes in the colors and shapes of the surrounding environment, much like Chicago’s ‘Cloud Gate’ by Indian-born British artist Anish Kapoor.
