PAUL & PAUL (Paul Benson and Paul Davis)
Coffee Table, 2019
18” H x 48” W x 36” D
Working together for over 20 years, Paul Benson, artist and craftsman, and Paul Davis, interior designer, collaborate to create a bespoke body of work that blurs the line between sculpture, furniture, and accessories.
Paul & Paul strive to develop techniques and designs for furniture that reach from nature and create a sense of wonder, continually pursuing new possibilities and seeking to transcend boundaries and limitations. In prior work, Paul & Paul designed bronze knobs that mimicked the feel and look of morel mushrooms. The organic shape and network of ridges and divots were something so wonderful to touch that they wanted to take it to a larger scale and create furniture pieces.
This body of work is the result of that exciting exploration.
