MetaMaterial: Custom Furniture and Panelling
by Elyse Graham

 

Hand casting sheets of colored epoxy resin into complex patterns, Elyse has created a material that is suitable as a marble substitute - both architecturally and for furniture applications. The methodology is an innovative combination of the glass murrine technique and the terrazzo process. Sheets up to 4 foot by 8 foot can be cast in a range of thicknesses from 3/8" for surfacing to 2” for furniture construction.

Starting with three base patterns that were selected to represent a distinct range of the strengths of Elyse’s style, available in three primary colorways, customization of imagery, color and scale is encouraged.
