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.
The first project for Moroso by Laura Aquili and Ergian Alberg, both graduates from the Milan Politecnico and the Delft University of Technology.
A partnership born in the London studio of Zaha Hadid and which in 2006 saw the setting-up of the Aquilialberg studio. Laura Aquili and Ergian Alberg have designed the side table Vertigo for Moroso, the product of research into the perception of movement applied to daily life. Made in Corian throughout, Vertigo expresses a new dynamic quality encapsulated in a strong conceptual abstraction. The shape evolves in space in a continuous and measured alternation of the surfaces.
Vertigo is a table with expressively flowing lines, symmetrical yet at the same time dense with spatial complexity. Inspired by Escher, it restores a new dynamic quality to the image, constructing its form in an exchange of continuity between solids and empty spaces, lightness and movement.
