1915 in collaboration with Kueng Caputo, Low table and shelf, Japan / Switzerland

This set of two stackable low tables was created for the exhibition ‘complementary colours-missing link of design’ held at Milan Design Week 2009. The thin steel bars that support the structure appear to be placed randomly but are positioned in a specific way to keep the table balanced and stable; two diametrical bars are always orientated at an angle of 90 degrees to each other and thus compensate the forces in the structure. This principle is reflected in the applied colour scheme in which the bars facing each other are painted in complementary colours. Corresponding to the forces in the structure, these colours neutralize themselves by turning to grey when mixed together, leaving the white boards hovering in space. 1915 is made of welded steel with a glossy paint finish.
