Star Wars marble furniture by Nathan Yong


Not for my budget, but I thought that these pieces of functional art by Singapore artist Nathan Yong were well worth posting here, as one of them is the Millennium Falcon. Not only designed to be pieces of art, these sculptures are also designed to be used for seating, or as a side table.

20A55B0E-1CC9-4901-B906-95CDD939D2C83563C1BD-8703-420A-8831-8D154EF38E52

Interesting, isn’t it?

Limited to an edition size of only 3 pieces, they’re $6, 195 each.

The size of the Falcon is 40 cm by 40 cm by 20 cm. (15.7” by 15.7” by 7.9”)

There are four differential sculptures, the Millennium Falcon, a  Tie Fighter in Black Stone, an AT-AT in grey and a Sandcrawler in a beautiful red stone. (I have to say that this one is my favourite.)

The artist has this to say about his work.

Announcing an exclusive collaboration between Disney and Grafunkt to commemorate the much anticipated film release of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” this December, Nathan Yong — Co-Founder of Grafunkt has come up with a series of 4 stool / side table designs available in limited runs as a Star Wars collectible edition.

The Millennium Falcon and TIE-Fighter were chosen to represent the duality of the Light and Dark side, whilst the AT-AT and Sandcrawler were chosen for their strong visual and architectural aspects respectively.

“I am stoked to have the opportunity to collaborate with Disney on this collection as Star Wars is very much a part of me and my generation’s life with its imperative pop culture impact and influence. Being a classic film while its contemporaries fade into obscurity, Star Wars remains timeless, accompanying us from boyhood through adulthood,” says Nathan.

“I hope to immortalise this journey of our evolving aesthetic sense as well, with this art and design-centric collection being a reflection of our current pop culture — one that challenges people’s mindset and perception of what film merchandising can be.”

 

About mffanrodders

A keen Star Wars collector since 1977, my collection focus seems to have taken on a turn towards Han Solo's iconic Star Ship. Why the Millennium Falcon? No one else seemed to have one at the time and it was fair to say that i had difficulty resisting the higher end models. My friend, icruise from Rebelscum has a superb blog for his Jabba the Hutt collection, I thought that i'd start this blog to chart my own collection of Millennium Falcon related stuff as it increases. Well, that was the plan but it now seems to be more about cataloguing any Millennium Falcon item in general now so that i can come back to them later.
