The piece, created for the Italian brand Bonaldo, is designed as a contrast to the larger, more solid bases that often support dining tables. The tabletop is supported by a single point at the center, making it appear to float above the metal support, which resembles the kind of wireframe model often used during the design process.
“In a way, the base is a subtle mix of tradition and modernity,” said Gilles, who recently unveiled an easy-to-assemble chair as part of an office furniture installation at this year’s IMM Cologne. The designer created several pieces for Bonaldo over the years, including an extendable table that revealed its inner workings.
Gilles took reference from the brand’s own heritage and past, and as a specialist manufacturer of furniture parts for the Mass tables, using a process that blends technology and human craftsmanship.
“The end result is a graphic table which has a strong personality but doesn’t take up too much room visually,” said Gilles. “It is also a table which generates visual tension and movement as one moves away from or around it.”
