The furniture whisperer
In the exhibition “Typecasting. An Assembly of Iconic, Forgotten and New Vitra Characters,” Robert Stadler lends furniture a voice. Let’s take a listen!
In fact, the idea couldn’t be simpler. Open spaces – be they offices, airports or public lounge areas – tend to generate a great deal of noise and visual distractions, to the detriment of people’s ability to work. An individual shield can help. In the case of the Sphere Table, this shield is a half-globe that can be attached to any one of the four legs of a small wooden table. The plexi-glass shield dampens noise, while its milky translucency allows the sunlight to shine through. In combination with the warm wooden table, the half globe generates a pleasant atmosphere, spanning the gap between a futuristic, glowing sphere and the familiar archetype of a traditional table. Together, they invite the user to dive into his personal sphere of concentration.
