Nothing like table hunting on a slow weekend. I came across these innovative designs so I had to share. These are not your mom’s coffee tables for sure.
COMB – GORDON GUILLAUMIER
The new Comb small tables by Gordon Guillaumier combine great expressive originality with a strong pull toward structural components, recapturing the finishes and decorative style elements of the 1950s and 1960s. In the coffee table version, Comb displays its royal character with generous dimensions and harmonious proportions, synthesizing them instead in the smallest side table variation, which can also be used as a sofa table thanks to its ingenious C shape.
SQUARE – CHRISTOPHE PILLET
On the occasion of Salone del Mobile 2017, Frag also introduces a new version of the Square coffee tables, designed by Christophe Pillet, embellishing the metallic rigor of the structure with a marble top, available in Emperador or Carrara marble.
VIAE -ANALOGIA PROJECT
This year the duo Analogia Project designs Viae, a collection of small tables inspired by the pebbles of the ancient Roman roads whose smooth, polished shape is the result of use and time. The project includes two versions, one with 3 and the other with 5 shelves with rounded edges which are all different from each other. The different surfaces – clad with various nuances of fully-flowered leather – are set side by side, recalling the stones which inspired the tables.
