A curious, unexpected floating object in the Salone del Mobile was presented by a British Company, Established & Sons. Manufacturing the original design of Ingo Maurer back in 2012, the floating table shows a rectangular/round table with four solid black wooden chairs fixed onto a white Formica tabletop structure, created in a standard diameter of 1.3 meters, which are also available in customizable sizes.
“This innovative piece is the first production table from the widely celebrated designer, Ingo Maurer. On first inspection, it appears to be archetypal wooden kitchen table and chairs but on closer viewing the table is revealed as ‘floating’; without any legs…”– Dezeen
This piece was inspired by Maurer’s interest in ethereal substances, magic, and weightlessness. It encourages users to look critically into simple daily objects and the elements of surprise.
