Nick Ross White Lies Coffee Table $8,936>

Nick Ross has been developing his White Lies Series since 2014. The project is a comment on the persistent misconception that ancient Greek and Roman sculpture was pure white—and that this whiteness should be understood as an expression of high culture and taste. Technology has shown that Classical marble artworks were, in fact, painted all over in vivid colors.Measuring 60 x 60 x 35 cm, Ross's White Lies Coffee Table is crafted in solid Bardiglio marble finished in a transparent colored lacquer. It is a small batch production made to order and can be customized with other colors and marbles.

Nick Ross is a Scottish-Swedish designer based in Stockholm. He studied Product Design at Grays School of Art in Aberdeen and earned his MA in Interior Architecture & Furniture Design at Konstfack in Stockholm.

In 2014, he launched his eponymous studio, through which he explores the complexities of history, creating design objects driven by historical investigations—with a keen interest in the facts and happenings that have determined specific cultural balances. Ross's work aim both to question pre-existing notions and to create bridges between yesterday and today.
