Kolos is formed in a plaster mould in pottery where craftsmen apply the glaze and then fire the table. Although shiny and polished to the touch, the material it is made of is evident. The corners absorb less colour and become paler while the pigments are concentrated in the rounded areas, making them darker. Kolos, therefore, forms a highly decorative side table, combining its function as a furnishing accessory with an artistic value to form a showpiece. Its eccentric aesthetic represents an ironic interpretation of the architecture of the Colosseum.
