Brad Pitt Buys $293,000 Table

  • Pin it

Every now and then, I fall under the spell of a piece of furniture, some interior decoration or some amazing house.

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?

I see computer art as a new form of art. Or new…but I don’t think it won’t l take away the hand-crafted art. There’s another, I thought well known, Dutch artist who works with the technique of the computer too. His name is Micha Klein.

This ‘table’ looks interesting but it is not my idea of a table in my house. I’m very amazed by the price $293,000????? Gosh……

That is one fine looking table. But I would not have paid over $289.000 it.

More of a lemon than a pumpkin…
Ugly and impractical.
I’ll stick to my upturned tea-chest, thankyou.
