Alex Nickbe has been a keen observer of biological systems for over 40 years.
His table designs incorporate the notion of biomimetics concentrating on the processes of self-renewal, diversity and change. Circular forms that characterize his work are used to symbolize the continuity of nature’s cycles while the structural variations evident within his compositions equate to natural diversity. Portrayal of change is accomplished by different sightlines that are exposed with each new perspective from which a table is viewed.
With these devices, Alex Nickbe makes it possible to introduce the spiritual essence of our evolutionary habitat into the settings of everyday living. The Nickbe table epitomizes an interactive art form that not only encourages individual creative expression but also awakens a higher level of human awareness of the remarkable biology of our planet.
