Steven Haulenbeek is a talented designer that leverages unconventional methods to put together his cocktail tables. The pieces are made using bronze and ice and a special technique called 'ice-cast bronzing' that gives the metal a warped and grainy texture that makes the material look like it has been stretched and pulled. The end result is a bronzed piece of furniture that looks like liquid suspended in time.

Haulenbeek's work is simultaneously both functional furniture and art, offering a sculptural design that gives the cocktail tables an intriguing appearance. The pieces are created using an ice cube with a design etched into the surface. Hot wax is then poured into a mould to capture the design, and render the ice sculpture solid.
