DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
konis

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Table

INSPIRATION:
The fundamental principle for konis table's design was conceived from a fragment's detachment from the ground. This fragment represents a concrete slab, which is deconstructed while uplifted, thus exposing its steel elements.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The Konis table was named after the ancient greek word meaning dust, plaster. This structure, consisted of wood, steel and plaster is indicative of the coalescence of physical materials as well as of an optical illusion concerning gravity. The singularity of the structure is based at the application of the plaster on its wooden surface, which lends weight to it like a hovering slab, whereas the load bearing steel base spatially fades by virtue of its radial design.
