The juxtaposition of the organic and warm wood grain with sleek modern and quite angular lines creates something similar to what the mid-century modernists achieved. I like my pieces to feel at once modern but in a retro kind of way. Perhaps they were futuristic at one time, but in today's digital age, they are a nod to the futurism of the past. I feel Apollo has an inherent strength and heaviness to it. Like the door or hatch to a fortress which provides safety and security in an uneasy world. This piece is made of American cherry hardwood that was reclaimed from an antique table.
