Disco-Volante Coffee Table by Simon Colabufalo

Home > Winners > #27912


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Disco-Volante

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Coffee Table

INSPIRATION:
The form of the Disco-Volante is loosely based on lily pads.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The pods of the Disco-Volante are in different colours, heights and sizes. The use of coloured translucent plastic produces coloured shadows.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The multi-level design allows people to interact with the table differently to how they would interact with a normal coffee table. A person could place an item not regularly used, like a book on a lower pod while placing a drink on one of the higher pods.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in August 2009 in Melbourne and finished in August 2011 in Melbourne, and was exhibited in DesignEX in 2012.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The Prototype table is made from polished aluminium and acrylic.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
733 x 1500 x 403

TAGS:
Coffee table, Aluminium, Acrylic, Colourful

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
When researching for this design I noted that a number of items placed on coffee tables have small footprints i.e, glassware, TV remote controls, books and magazines. This allowed me to design a table with a number of small pods without losing any usability.
