Although the work of Bazilebustamante appears to be by a single hand, there are actually two artists behind that name: Bernard Bazile and Jean-Marc Bustamante. Constantly recurring elements in their work, which is very diverse in character, are an interest in the decorative, allusions to interior design and an undertone of irony. In 'Table' the boundaries between sculpture and design appear to have been abolished. The combination of glass and steel is reminiscent of the furniture of Mies van der Rohe, but the object lacks functionality. The chair, appears to be an indispensable support, which finds its couterpart in the thin configuration of four legs. The decorative band of meander pattern on the glass plate is so strong a visual presence that the table appears to tilt and a sculptural tension is created.
