Pour is side table that resulted from explorations that arose from questioning fabrication techniques and processes, more specifically, plastic resin-casting methods. The work also aligns to itself to the artisanal approach to production, developing craftsmanship techniques to produce the table otherwise unachievable with automation.

Essentially “moulding without a mould”, each table is made by casting the table surface upside down without any walls to hold the liquid resin in. The concept of the making process is inspired by Kueh Lapis Sagu, a traditional Malay/Peranakan steamed pastry. Each colour is individually poured with precise control of curing durations in succession so that each colour to not mix with the adjacent one, resulting in the multi-coloured effect within a single seamless surface. This is made possible with a unique concoction of a fast curing epoxy resin system blended with fillers that renders the resin viscous yet pourable, and resulting in a surface tension that “puddles up” despite gravity on an open surface like a baked macaroon.

Each table surface is handmade.

Artist Profile

Born: 1980

Hometown: Singapore

Lives and Works: Singapore

Tiptoeing on the boundaries between design and art, Hans deploys design as medium in his practice, making use of utility as a pretext to comment on design and its industry as a phenomenon. He has particular interest in developing materials and processes, especially in the context of heritage, consumption, and waste.

He has been included in exhibitions such as "Singletown" at the Venice Biennale, "Surface art/design" in Dortmund and Cologne, "No Boundaries" at ArtStage Singapore, and "Beauty" at the Cooper Hewitt Design Triennial, Smithsonian Design Museum New York. His work, Spotted Nyonya, was awarded with the distinction of "Les Découvertes" at the fall edition of Maison et Objet 2012 in Paris. He is a two-time winner of Design of the Year at the President's Design Award, Singapore's highest design accolade, and his works are held in private collections, as well as public permanent collections at the National Collection of Singapore; M+ Museum for Visual Culture, Hong Kong; and the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum, New York.
