The base of the table is made from a #wireframe structure that is seen across…

The #C1Coffeetable was designed by #danish #designhouse #ByKATO in #2012. @ByKato was created in 2010 by #KarlRossell and #TonnyGlismand, with the aim to create commercial industrial design with high quality craftsmanship.  The #table features asymmetrical curves inspired by nature and the fractal designs of mathematician Georgy Voronoi. This has led to the #coffeetable sometimes being referred to as the #Voronoi table.  The lower #shelf of the table is removable, and has been cleverly…

#IlmariTapiovaara is known as one of the most prolific #midcentury #modern #Finnish #designers.  While he collaborated with great designers such as LeCorbusier and Van Der Rohe, it was Alvar Aalto that was most influential to Tapiovaara's work and philosophies.  Like #Aalto, #Tapiovaara's favourite material to design in was #wood. His aim was to create #furniture that blended into the interiors of homes. Designs that were simple, beautiful and affordable for the general public.  The…

Drinking #coffee is a serious pastime in the #Nordic countries. In fact the top 4 coffee drinking countries in the world are all in #Scandinavia.  With this in mind, you can imagine that sharing a coffee with friends and family is a common event.  The #Around #coffeetable was created by #Danish #designer #ThomasBentzen in #2011.  In Bentzen's own words "I like a good edge on my coffee table; it keeps the coffee where it belongs. Inspired by the 50's and 60's #Scandinavian furniture-master's…

#American #Artist #TheodoreWaddell created the 713 #table (also known as a Tensegrity table) for #Cassina in #1973. #Tensegrity is a term coined by Buckminster Fuller in the 1960's as a derivitive combination of tensional integrity.  The dynamics of how the table base is cleverly held together doesn't leave anyone guessing about the name choice.  The table features 6 chrome plated rods held in complex arrangement with a steel wire and topped with bevelled glass. When viewed from above, the…
