Ex Hale is a marble table that mimics the shape of a monumental cushion, resulting from a transformation of materials. Two metal sheets are blown up with the same technique that Ben Storms first used for his In Vein and In Hale tables. The resulting cushion shape is then scanned in 3D, after which a CNC machine mills the same shape from a block of marble. Ex Hale plays with our common notions of materiality: the hard stone looks soft instead, an impression that is further enhanced by the delicate surface treatment.
