Rivington Tables by Barber & Osgerby
Ceramic never looked so good on a table as it does with Mutina’s Rivington, a new collection of wall-mounted and freestanding tables that’s also an homage to London’s Rivington Bar & Grill, close by the Barber/Osgerby Studio and a favoured haunt of the designers and the Mutina team.
The tables are made using slip casting, a technique that allows for the precise and regular reproduction of irregular shapes. In this case, facilitating the interplay between the stadium-shaped shaft and the rectangular top and bottom.
The vibrant color palette pays homage to the designers’ decade-long relationship with Mutina, a collaboration marked by a spirit of playfulness and experimentation: “We enjoyed the liberty to craft a more compact collection where colour plays a pivotal role. It can be bolder, more vibrant… kind of like candy.”
Indeed, candy is a nice metaphor for the way the high-gloss ceramic captures these dynamic shades of blue, green, orange, and black—a vibrant interplay of color and texture.
Each piece in the collection is individually stamped and signed, adding to the heirloom feel of these unique tables.
