Loving these tables from Suzy Lelièvry‘s Contorsions series.
I’m pretty sure that I’ll never buy a glass table but the black version of Nendo‘s transparent table is the closest what I would consider. They’ve cast wood with a strong grain in clear acrylic and assembled the pieces to create a table. The level of detail is quite impressive, the edges are beveled and the ends even have the matching grain.

Every design starts on a piece of paper and often those ideas get visualised by a paper model. The look an feel of those paper model was the basic idea behind The Cut Series, a collaboration between Daniel Enoksson, Lucas E Hinnerud and Jens Boldt. They’ve designed tables, a shelf and a sideboard which look like paper models but are made of aluminum.

The Flat Project is a collaboration between Jo Nagasaka and Shuhei Nakamura. They used translucent color epoxy on uneven surfaces to create these Flat Tables. The color of the surfaces are dependent on the depth of the epoxy layer. The flattening creates a diversity in color. You can go and see these table at happa inTokyo till December 19th.
Tonight was the opening of the Youngsters exhibition of the DMY Berlin International Design Festival. The quality of the work on display was very good, in the next few posts I will present some of them.
Nido is a collection of 6 stools and tables by Eva Marguerre. They are made of fibreglass which makes them extremely light, between 840g and 1020g, but also very stable, they can carry up to 150kg. You should actually watch the videos in the moodgallery. The material and the resin give them a very nice texture. They are only available in laser red and cost €198. I’m sold.
Nido is also on the shortlist for the DMY Award, good luck next Friday!
The “BLUR Collection” by Big-Game is one of the better design projects I’ve seen lately. The vases are so high that the flowers disappear almost completely into them, only their colored shadow appear through the frosted glass. The tables and mirrors are silkscreened with a gradient. Your reflection disappears towards to bottom of the mirror. The tables look like they are up in the clouds. Nice work!
