The starting point for this design was our enormous fascination with the sculptures of Alexander Calder. We are greatly impressed by their poetry, their playfulness and immediacy, their lightness and gravity, the way they create space without mass, their complexity as well as their simplicity.
We wanted to translate this presence into a centerpiece, a kind of anchor in the room, which modulates and defines the surrounding space without imposing a specific direction. Five surfaces define both dynamism and peacefulness at the same time. The cutouts at the intersections of the surfaces allow the space to flow and enable construction, transport and assembly. The table is available in two sizes, making it a flexible, lightweight companion.
