The True Value Of Money

Along with artist Alejandro Monge, Barcelona-based design practice Amarist Studio created a coffee table that won’t let you forget about the volatility of the wealth.

An elegant and refined art object, it holds a pyramid of 50€ burning bills under the glass surface. The work captures the very moment of incineration, enhanced by the real flame burning from the top of the pyramid and crossing the glass to the outside of the structure. Surprisingly, only the fire is an authentic element – neither the money, the ashes nor the concrete is real. Everything has been made of resin, paint and paper. In a way, this symbolic work conveys a striking visual effect, provoking many thoughts in the viewer’s mind. “One of the most interesting things of this piece is, in fact, to see the different reactions that causes on people depending on their culture and background,” say the creators.
