PETER KATTAN DESIGN

Multidisciplinary Artist

Peter's creations are more like conversational pieces. They reflect his deep desire, his ever-growing hunger to disrupt the status quo, while at the same time striving to make a difference in people’s lives through his work. 

Peter's approach drives from creating pieces that endeavor to think outside the box. Carefully constructed for people who want to go beyond scratching the surface of ideas and who are willing to risk, to explore and to try different things.

Because after all, why not…

A MOMENT OF INTIMACY

This iconic reflection captures the essence of urban domestic harmony. It reinforces an ever-growing philosophy of minimalism. This is especially evident in the clean surfaces and sleek lines ever emerging from this instinctive work of art. This piece while erupting a continuing flow of intimacy also exudes sophistication on every level. While adding hints of masculinity it also is sprinkled with accents of femininity. Providing an effortless silhouette backdrop for conversation. Seamlessly linking the other “worlds” of all that gather around and pass the time by transparently… The object is a dining table, it could be made of a wooden or brushed stainless-steel sculpture base with a piece of clear glass afixed to the top. It can be used for residential or commercial purposes.

This dining table was the winner of a Canadian national design contest 'Made By You Design Challenge' organized by Mirens furniture with 2523 votes.  The table was showcased at IDS 2015 (The Interior Design Show) in Toronto & received a lot of attention & interest from both media & visitors.
