Soma, in definition, is a body that is distinct from the soul, mind, or psyche. The soma is a supporting structure; it is the architecture. It is the physical, and only physical, essence of a being. By considering the soma we seek to appreciate an object in its most literal state.
With our Soma series we celebrate the attraction to the physicality of an object, removed from any emotional connection. Our Soma table bases have been carved from a single tree, reduced to a form that is familiar and distinct. Attractions to the symmetry and patterns in design have been recognized from seashells to pyramids.
