Australian born, UK based designer-maker, Jay Watson, has created furnishings that will leave you with a long lasting impression. This wonderfully sleek table, as beautiful as it is in its pure form, has a special touch. Using Thermochromism, the science that changes the colours of properties due to change in heat (Thanks Wikipedia), Jay has encompassed both beautiful design with remarkable lasting impressions and created this project titled ‘Linger a little longer‘.
Jay Watson explains on his website the thoughts behind the project:
[box style="rounded" border="full"]Making entertaining that bit more fun (while also commenting on how ‘precious’ we can become about the functionality of furniture, or how oblivious we can be to every effect we have on our environment) the thermochromic finish of the table and benches responds to the heat of any plate, mug or serving dish – or body part – placed on it, to leave an ephemeral ‘watermark.’[/box]
Whatever stance you decide to take towards Jay’s work, it is undeniably creative. This piece takes the Art of Science and adds function and aesthatics to an already wonderful piece of furnishing. Furnishings that change their form, in a way which is relative to the end user’s experience and movement is something that may change the way we envision our home furnishings.
