Striking. Wooden side table consisting of two stripped-down trestles and a table top. The seemingly heavy top contrasts the rigid trestles. The top gives in and provides space for the sharp ends of the trestles to lock the legs and the top together. Intriguing shapes, familiar yet not at all, balancing between art and design. Viewed from different angles the side table varies greatly. A design meant to puzzle our understanding of shape, form and function.
Dominic Plueer and Olivier Smitt are Swiss born desiners. They aim to offer something lasting, physically as well as mentally, as a contrast to a society which is sometimes more driven by consumption and replacement. In most of their work they interpret their own observations of already excisting products.
