'The Champagne Table' is sand casted using the same techniques as the bells made in the foundry 300 years before. M&E Ohlssons Klockgjuteri AB is a metal foundry in Ystad in the south of Sweden, a main logistics port from Sweden to Europe. The town is well known for its productions of the TV series ‘The Bridge’ and ‘Wallander’. M&E Ohlssons Klockgjuteri have been casting bells for churches and boats since the 1800s. Situated inside a manufacturing area they have businesses around them that do highly specialised 3D printing, precision metal machining and stone cutting. All of which is used in the production of various products by Glen Baghurst.
During Baghurst’s travels in Spain he came across a 1970s plastic drinks table. This made him ask what a contemporary drinks table would look like, and champagne came directly to mind. The bell shape made for a perfect holder of the bottles and by extending the shape it provided a surface for glass and serveware.
