The Apollo Table is an innovative, creatively designed piece of
high quality furniture cast in bronze to celebrate achievements
in space exploration.
Stoddart chose the subject matter for this Apollo table design,
as the developments which were directly influenced by space exploration
touch everyone's life in some way. The Apollo table was presented
to Buzz Aldrin late last year. Furthermore,
Mark considers the first moon landing to be man's single most
significant achievement in the last thousand years, and believes
that ongoing space research will continue to impact on all our
lives throughout the next millennium and beyond.
Mark's design for this striking piece of furniture for the home
or workplace, centres round his representation of the Apollo 11
lunar landing module.
This forms the base of the table and is cast in solid bronze.
Standing 20 inches high, the table is completed by a 45 inch diameter
top of polished glass, carrying an engraved inscription of Neil
Armstrong's famous quotation uttered as he set foot on the moon
in July 1969.
If desired, the table can also contain a space within the base
section which can be adapted easily to form a time capsule, allowing
owners to store messages or items for family members to unlock
and discover in the future.
