The body of this coffee table is formed by an approximately 100-year-old drum. The pedal-drums include original leather membranes, back-lit in order to admire their leather texture as well as the traces of music they once made, the imprint of the pedal and repairs to torn leather. The table has its central focal point, a large ball of pyrite (also known as Fool’s Gold) that can be easily removed and used for esoteric and meditation practices. When lit, the coffee table becomes the focal center of an interior, inviting us to enjoy a glass of good whiskey or a game of chess or cards.
Martin Pribyla is a Czech artist, designer, musician, biologist, and pilot. His work is informed by his fascination with materials and mechanical capabilities. These varied talents translate into his creations in a variety of output, as well as an unusual ability to blend and combine. A tinkerer by nature, his designs and objects arise from the material rather than starting with a vision and then finding materials suitable for its execution. Martin’s main focus is on bringing the best out of his wide range of materials through strong design ideas and superb craftsmanship.
