When I saw this white…. something…. I didn’t knew what to say…I didn’t even understood what it is or what it stands for! Then I read it’s a table. Freshly purchased by Brad Pitt, this very particular looking table is called Cinderella and costs $293,000. As impressive as it may look, this white marble rococo style table is made by the Dutch artist Jeroen Verhoeven with CAD-CAM (computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing) and hand-finished.
I wonder if integrating computer into art is not less of an art… I always looked at hand-crafted-objects like this one with admiration and thought the work put into them added an enormous value to the outcome. Does modern technique steal that all away?
