DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Café

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Center Table

INSPIRATION:
Brazil is by far the biggest coffee seeds producer, and the production is widely appreciated all over the world. Inspired aesthetically by the coffee beans with this table we try to honor our country and create an piece of furniture with an unusual and impacting design.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The Café Central Table have a unique asymmetric imposing shape that converge art and design. It was inspired by the brazilians coffee beans and translates our culture in many ways. Once it is unusual to have a scaled proportion of a seed, it cause curiosity and projects the user to a new level of abstraction and originality. The brutalism of the material is immediately interrupted by it sinuous shape, however adds to the piece a touch of "timeless".

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
This is a simple and expressive product with a peculiar aesthetic that fits well with cool and large environments. It is a product that stands out anywhere that is placed, done for support everything, is ideal to living rooms. The great characteristic about it is that seems heavy, however, it is all empty inside,so it can be easily moved by two people.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project Started in September 2014 and finished in November 2014.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:

TAGS:
Café, Coffee, Bean, table, Center table, Concrete.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
As a result of a partnership with the Italian brand, Il Cantiere, that build an exceptional concrete pieces and architectures parts for names like Zaha Hadid and Norman Foster, we developed a serie of furnitures that defines brazilian culture through shapes and material. This particular one stand in the direction of expression and art, and easily translate the brazilian way of thinking to the world around. Drawing was a big part of the job, we create a bunch of sketches trying to archive the perfect aesthetic, and we did. The difficult part was to model in 3D. However once we have done it, bring it to life with minimal waste of material, was a beautiful job, and we could count with the help of 3D printer and high quality concrete modules.

CHALLENGE:
The most challenging part was to create something original and yet iconic, that transcript our culture into a piece of furniture.
