Four legs and a seat shell
by Thomas Wagner | 6/13/2015
Philippe I is a mini-collection of ‘gueridon' or small tables and café tables. Philippe I is the evolution of a formal language launched in the Marie Antoinette Pop Collection, presented by Casamania in 2009. The Philippe I side tables are easy to place i
n any type of environment, either singularly or in couples. The collection is completed with an intimate dining or cafe table which evokes the romanticism of candle-lit dinners in the warm Parisian night.
The table is crafted from lacquered MDF coupled
with the richness of walnut. A matt lacquer is applied to the piece like a sophisticated dress, the 'skirt' of which is raised slightly off the ground to offer a glimpse of warm flesh beneath. This sensuality is juxtaposed with a cool glass top in a mirr
ored or transparent finish, a stylistic foible with strong practical advantages.
These concepts passed through a filter, with explicit stylistic references to the 18th century French cabinetry tradition coupled with an attention to detail, manufacturin
g methods, and usability that are characteristic of our 21st century way of life.
