New tables: From material fetish to the Zen factor
by Jasmin Jouhar | 4/11/2017
Be they short or long of leg, simply unique or extravagant: there’s no end to the variety of tables in Milan.
Moroso started using a hand-weaving technique employing the plastic threads traditionally used for making fish nets. This created the success of Tord Boontje’s Shadowy collection. The same technique is now used by Bibi Seck and Ayse Birsel who created a wide range of attractive, softly rounded products, such as Madame Dakar, a enormous armchair as enveloping as a hammock. Then there’s Patricia Urquiola’s “bench” that sits on the sand like a tree trunk, accompanied by a smaller, single-seat twin and by a low table.
