DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Raica

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Coffee table

INSPIRATION:
Lotus leaves, with their wide surface and strong stems growing from the depth of marshes that reach the water surface, inspire us with stamina, span and hosting the nature. The round and big surface of the table and its resistant legs relate with the original form of the lotus leaf and its strong stems, respectively. Additionally, the building material of the table is the wood taken from the nature.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Raica brings a part of nature to your home, a wooden table similar to the leaves of a lotus which is grown and raised from the Earth. Lotus flower is known as a symbol of peace and friendship in lots of ancient civilizations such as Iran. Raica table depicts the growth of peace, altruism and family warmness in your living space. In line with these concepts, this product is designed in a way to have maximum compatibility with the environment and the standards of green design.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Raica table has soft corners and the combination of round surface and foot angles has an impressive visual balance. This product is designed in a way to have maximum compatibility with the environment and the standards of green design, while having maximum simplicity and ease of production. In addition, the pieces remaining after production process can be used in creation of other types of tables with different designs such as "Elsa" table.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
At the beginning, some research was done on methods and equipment required for 90 degrees formation of plywood. The result of this research revealed the method for creation of the cast and pressing plywood which gave us the desired result after two trials. In the meantime, the target market and customers' needs were studied using social networks, internet, performed surveys and feedbacks received at our sales points and the information in our archive. In addition, some research was done on characteristics and shape of the leaves of lotus flower in Anzali lagoon and other lagoons outside Iran. The historical and social aspects of lotus flower in ancient Iran, especially Achaemenian era, as well as its relation with other ancient civilizations, were also studied. In general, all researches were done using internet, reference books, the company's archive and the experience of Iranian pioneers in this field.

CHALLENGE:
The main challenge in production of this table was to form sharp 90 degrees angles with plywood, in a stable way that neither temperature nor aging, make it change. So many casts were built and tested in order to give us the desired perfect result. The next challenge was the endurance of the table legs, which was successfully tested on the first prototype. Internal influencing factors of the table are: the conceptual position of Lotus flower in ancient Iran meaning the philosophical view about it, the natural and physical characteristics of this flower such as its growth from the depth of unclean lagoons, and the fresh and smooth sense of looking and touching the surface of the table inspired by the leaves of Lotus. External influencing factors of the table are: related standards such as the height and static resistance of the table, compliance with green design and the company's production capabilities such as 90-degrees plywood pressing and forming using a 5-axis CNC.
