Same? Not Exactly III - Side/Coffee Table

7.  Bold and Metal
We can now choose single origin in most specialty cafes, furnishings can also be crafted and welded by single material in strong and geometrical expression.
Definition of art has been renewed since Marcel Duchamp’s Fountain, furnishing combines storage and display in their own sleek form and simplicity is also regarded as functional art.

現代藝術早已從Marcel Duchamp的 Fountain開始重新定義,不再侷限創作的方式型態,
以單一材質焊接而成,展示收納合一的特色幾何結構,即帶簡約美感的「一件過」也算是現代功能藝術的一種。

Schmahl + Schnippering - Maximilian Schmahl and Fabian Schnippering, the two German designers, who have been working together since collages. With their shared love for details and soft forms, they believed that part of cultures are formed with designs that people can integrate into their life. They designed By Your Side Table for Skagerak as well. Again, it is a smart and people-oriented one in aluminium with thin grooves to slide away rainwaters. And of course, light in weight for both in and outdoor.

8. Textured top and clean legs

A piece can be a major cast or a complement, contemporary or classic, everyone has their own interpretation, including functional art. From material source, form of design, brand history, traditional craftsmanship, inspirations and the relationship between designers, every single aspect is to be studied thoroughly and respectfully.
//
解讀方式相異而成的油畫、雕塑品、音樂等人們大多稱之為藝術;傢俬也同樣,材質選擇、外型設計、品牌歷史、手工藝/技術、靈感故事、甚至設計師之間的淵源等,每樣都值得慢慢細研。

Stockholm | Breda

Stockholm Collection itself says a lot with very little, including its unique 3mm aluminium covering top, bevelled edges and flat surface. Breda Collection has a slightly concave surface along its perimeter and of course every single element having their own mission. Both available in textured MDF/ wooden tops with Punt’s iconic clean and straight 3-legs in solid wood.

Cuatro | Halves

Cuatro means four in Spanish. It is made with four E1 (low formaldehyde content) MDF fibreboards and natural oak wood veneer in 2 directions for all corners and oak/ Punt’s iconic metallic varnishes (newly added this year).

Halves is made by cutting and welding large sheets of acrylic stone in Muuto’s iconic composite. The side table speaks for Muuto’s softness in its sleek surface, seamless joints and low saturation hue.

Cuatro在西班牙文意指四,由4塊低甲醛的E1中密度纖維及自然橡木皮組成,可選擇邊桌的方向貼合房間角落,以及各種顏色的木面跟今年新增的Punt標誌式金屬面。Halves則以混合材質製成,將大塊壓克力石材壓制成零罅隙的邊桌,光滑表面及低飽和的配色呈現Muuto特有的柔和感。
