Art furniture: Lunar bench by Jesse Ede

Lunar Bench is an art furniture indoor/outdoor bench made from a combination of smolten recycled Aluminium and a piece of Malmesbury Slate stone finely selected on the field by Jesse Ede.

The stone was sourced from a local quarry close to where Jesse lives and is very common in the geological make up of the Cape, but rarely used for anything else but building materials.

Art furniture Art furniture: Lunar bench by Jesse Ede Art furniture Lunar bench by Jesse Ede I Lobo you5The inspiration and aim of this piece is to accentute contrast in balance.  The subtle cast Aluminium leg embodies lightness, and the large stone represents heaviness. At the same time, these two materials are manipulated in a way that shows the contrast between them and the man-made processes that form them into their sculptures.

Jesse Ede looks to celebrate the rawness of uncontrollable outcomes, from processes that are uncommonly used. Here the muted silver surface, created by open-cast aluminium pouring and so unbound by the inside of a surface mould, resembles an otherworldly landscape similar to that of the moon. And that might be the inspiration for the name of this masterpiece.

Ede worked and travelled the world for eight years before moving back to Cape Town, spending some time working as carpenter for an Antiguan boat-building company. His work on classic sailing boats, allowed him to further more hone his carpentry skills.
