Between the interface of functional objects and visual art, Lucas Morten invites you to an era where contemporary questioning social thoughts meet the history of brutalism. During a visit to the Jewish Museum in New York City, Lucas Morten got fascinated by the Star of David and its many strict angles and sharp tips. It was out from a geometric play with parts from the star that the Udd table took its shape. In order to keep a whole expression from getting too strict, the artist found a way to hand- anodized the aluminum which enabled a more organic paint pattern and gave the piece a sense of uniqueness.
Lucas Morten is a multi-disciplinary artist juggling various mediums, resulting in either functional objects or visual arts. Regardless of the chosen art-form, Lucas invariably manages to translate an idea while bringing up his own reflection on some specific fundamental and social topics. His individual way of questioning our present day’s -world, takes the viewer in his own dreamland where his own way of conveying an idea and omnipresent examination of thoughts take his design to another level of expression.
