Tavolo Livelli Table by Wouter van Riet Paap

Home > Winners > #30098


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Tavolo Livelli

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Table

INSPIRATION:
My apartment is rather small, leaving me with little space for storage. This is why I try to create storage possibilities in all my designs. Space that would normally not be considered for use, like the space under the table. This table is both beautiful and practical.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Tavolo Livelli is a table with two tabletops. The space between the two tabletops can be used to store a laptop, books, etc. The diagonally placed legs create a beautifully fading shadow between the two tabletops. All X and Y surfaces - tabletops and legs - are 25 mm thick.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Tavolo Livelli is a table, used for working, eating, socializing, etc. The difference with normal tables is the double tabletop. The space between the two tabletops can be used to store things like a laptop, the book you are currently reading, the homework you are working on, etc. Besides this very practical aspect, the functional space between the tabletops also becomes aesthetic: The legs of the table are placed in an angle, creating a fading shadow between the two tabletops.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The design started in January 2013 in Utrecht (The Netherlands) and the prototype was finished in August 2013 in Dalfsen (The Netherlands).

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

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The table is constructed in wood (MDF). The design was made using 3D software after which several 3D prints were made to finalize the design.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
1800 mm x 800 mm x 760 mm

TAGS:
Table, Storage, Laptop, Book, Double use,

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
For this design it was important to have the right height, enough space for storage and the right empty space under the table for sitting comfortably. Although this seems quite simple, it is actually a delicate balance for which several mock-ups were created. Another issue was giving the table enough strength, without becoming to thick or to have visually disturbing reinforcement. Again tested with mock-ups. All these aspects culminated in a very precise dimensioning.
