DescriptionThe table N7 is the result of a close observation of the world: both natural and man made. The Table is a single piece of cast aluminium taking its inspiration from nature in the balance of form and function, and from the man-made world in its appropriation of a stylistic language typically associated with military engineering. Faceted and determined and at the same time functional and elegant.
"N7 is refers to military and aeronautical iconography. The complexity of the structure, its angular forms, its volumetric details resulting from a challenging construction closely linked to the use of a specific material (aluminium plate) and folding techniques. This is not a design for military aims, but a design inspired by military language, extremely functional: the form of each detail is relevant to its function. Just as in nature. There’s another picture in my ‘archive’ which I consider quite symbolic: the angular form of deer’s hind legs, which gives them stability and the power to run"
