DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
la SINFONIA de los ARBOLES

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Table

INSPIRATION:
The table la SINFONIA de los ARBOLES is a search for poetry in design... A forest as seen from the ground is like columns fading away into the sky. We cannot see them from above; the forest from a bird’s eye view resembles a smooth carpet. Verticality becomes horizontality and still remains unified in its duality. Likewise, the table la SINFONIA de los ARBOLES, brings to mind the branches of the trees forming a stable base for a subtle counter top that challenges the force of gravity. Only here and there the rays of the sun flicker through the branches of the trees. This symphony has a continuation in the coffee table el ADAGIO de los ARBOLITOS...

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The table la SINFONIA de los ARBOLES is a combination of a stable, albeit subtle, openwork base with a delicate counter top obtained by the sharp cut of the edge. The counter top is covered with a wood veneer with a delicate pattern in order to boost the effect of nature inherent in a thicket of trees.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
How can a table without four legs allow anyone to sit at any place on its edge? La SINFONIA de los ARBOLES gives such a possibility to its users. How to finish the top of the table, so as not to let the scratches be seen in a single color material? This is archieved by using a material which, thanks to its structure, does not highlight imperfections and even hides them.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Wrocław, Poland. The project started in March 2014 in Wrocław and finished in January 2016 in Wrocław. This idea grew along with the branches of the trees... until it reached its real, final shape.

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

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The base of the table is made of polished stainless steel. Alternatively, it may also be performed from brushed stainless steel. The table top of MDF is covered with white veneer on the top and painted white on the underside.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
table dimensions – width 2400mm x depth 1000mmx height 750mm

TAGS:
table, furniture, dining room, wood, veneer, nature, stainless steel, modern, poetic

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Methods were sought to accurately connect the upper and lower steel frames of the base of the table with rods, while still maintaining the aesthetics. In addition, various formulations were tested for white veneers to avoid a yellowing effect.

CHALLENGE:
Stainless steel is a very noble but also difficult material. The manufacture of the table had to overcome the stresses that arise when connecting rods of the upper and lower frames of the table base. Its implementation also required great precision, because the stainless steel had been previously polished. Moreover, working with tinted white natural veneer finishing was also a challenge, because it requires precision at the joints as well as the use of non-yellowing layers of glue and varnish. An additional difficulty came from cutting the counter top at a sharp angle, in order to create the impression that the table was a piece of paper.
