Description/

Gregor Jenkin is widely lauded as one of South Africa’s foremost designers. A self-proclaimed ‘maker of things’, his interest in engineering, intervention and re-imagining has shaped unique and storied pieces and a pared down vernacular that is at once nostalgic and highly contemporary.

This steel table was part of a series of metal furniture inspired by internationally acclaimed artist William Kentridge’s torn-paper work. Kentridge was the first patron to buy one of Gregor Jenkin Studio’s table. In 2012, they began a collaboration that saw the artist sending Gregor jagged paper tear-outs, whose exact shape the designer would then laser-cut to form the legs of tables. It was an exercise in both precision and imprecision. Each leg of each table is different from the next: from one side, a jagged, organic shape; from the other, a classically curved table leg. In this way, the two have collaborated in a way that is far more than just conceptual. It is a hands-on, step-bystep collaboration: various parts put together
in sequence to create a whole. The resulting works have been included in Kentridge’s exhibitions at leading galleries and museums all over the world.

Jenkin was the first African designer to feature at Design Miami and has pieces in the permanent collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Modern Art. He was the first recipient of the Design Foundation Icon Award in 2012, which he won again in 2017.
