A DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH

Victor Tanisaka - Tuesday, May 25, 2010

Just like a Diamond, Acrylic also comes in a raw form as well that is almost unrecognizable.  Unpolished and dull, one can almost mistake a raw piece of acrylic for a scrap of undesirable plastic.  But when faceted, buffed, and shined the attributes of acrylic take on the same as that of a well cut and polished diamond.  In the photo below are examples of what a raw diamond and raw piece of acrylic look like before and after this skilled process is completed.  It's no wonder that when inspired by diamonds, that Alexandra chose Acrylic as her choice of material to design her Contemporary Acrylic Furniture collection.

 

Using the Matrix that a gemologist use, Alexandra had her tables drafted and designed.

THE BULLET ACRYLIC COCKTAIL TABLE

In the picture above is a direct example of how the Emerald Cut Diamond directly influenced Alexandra's design.  That, combined with the shape of the goldbar, gave Alexandra the inpsiration to design one of her most exclusive and photographed tables, the Bullet Acrylic Cocktail Table.

TRILLION ACRYLC SIDE TABLES

The Trillion Acrylic Side Tables are another example of how the shape and cut of a diamond dicrectly influenced the shape of Alexandra's design.  Here the 3 Sided Trilion side tables show an example of how the trillion faceted cut diamond gave inspiration for the shape of these exquisite acrylic end tables.
