Furniture With a Figuratively Beating Heart: Rising Table
By completely renegading the idea of conformity, designer Robert van Embricqs created an elegant table, that breaks the pattern of flat table tops on four legs. The result is a surprising mixture of fluid design that “blends the multifaceted tabletop with the latticework of wooden beams that function as the center of the construct. From there, the table sprouts four wooden beams that hold up the entire construct“.
Rising Table is the consequence of closely studying the transformations which occur in nature, without the participation of men: “This inspired the incision pattern in the flat surface of the wood that resulted into the creation of a latticework of woven wooden beams that make up the center of the table. By emphasizing nature’s logic, a seemingly random collection of wooden beams organically merges to form the figuratively beating heart of the Rising Table“. Find its design original?
