// Dancing Coffee Table
The Dancing Coffee Table is an exploration of the concept of movement, so naturally, it’s conceived only of circles, since they have an inherent movement in them. From wheels, to bearings, gears and pulleys, we as a species have always been aided by the circle to move things. Circles are what allows most modern machinery to exist and work.
Since movement is intrinsic to circles, but not to tables, it needed to be removed. However, to not alter the balance of the table and to continue with the exploration of the concept, movement is not removed, but just moved, from the circles to the finishing: iridescent paint.
Iridescent paint changes colour when seen from different angles, so although the object remains static, there is a constant change, a perpetual movement of colours which allow the users to experience a different table each time they look at it.
// Brvtvs Coffee Table
The Brvtvs coffee table is an exercise in balance and it’s inspired by the stark and geometric shapes used in the brutalist architectural movement. Imposing and geometric, brutalist buildings have a graphic quality that makes them very appealing, a quality that is also visible in the table.
The table consists only of round shapes and curves, and the only straight lines that exist in it arise from the extrusion of the curves.
Brvtvs does not have legs and it is held in place and balanced by a steel tube that acts as a counterweight, allowing it to remain steady.
