Tipping Point is an optically arresting sculptural feat; appearing to defy gravity by impossibly balancing a huge leaning volume on a knife-edge. The highly reflective mirror-polished stainless steel heightens the visual weightlessness offering a gleaming, eye-catching pair of balancing arcs in perfect symmetry. The lustrous surface creates elegant elongated reflections of the surrounding environment, rendering the whole piece to appear almost invisible. The reflective nature of the work makes the piece easy to integrate into a living space, and the circular design creates a self-contained working area which is easy to place into an open plan space.
This piece functions as a cooking stage, completely serviced with sink, draining board, dishwasher, induction hobs, storage, and all the necessary utilities. One arc features an integrated curved sink and drainer, the drainer is realised in reclaimed teak, prized for its resistance to water. The opposite arc offers a cooking surface which is conceived in black heatproof glass with an induction hob. Both counterparts echo the same curved drawers
which are created in dark walnut, adding visual weight as if shading the interior of the work. The raised height of the outside level can function as a circular bar at which to stand or sit, and also at eye-line conceals the working area.
Tipping Point has an interesting dichotomy, it has a commanding presence, with its playful shape and strong geometry, but it is also has a lightness, through the weightless tapered base and endless reflections.
