A touch of new objectivity

Quo vadis, furniture design? This year’s Salone del Mobile reveals a few ideas. An analysis in our glance back at the fair.
A table that opens out like a treasure chest, a unique creation by an artist who has transferred his sunken worlds into the representation of a graphic surface used as a table top. And this visual space becomes the focal point around which to come together and share food. The conceptual ornateness is visually rendered in the splendid decoration: the crystal-clear gem and its subtle nuances of colour give a special kind of light that can either hide things or highlight them.
When "closed" the table measures 130x130 cm, when "open", 130x260 cm; it is made of screen-printed wood, and the inside is covered with glass.
