Created by Sydney based Peruvian architect Luis Gomez Siu, the ‘Capas’ table promotes a greener and more flexible approach to design.
May 9th, 2014
The ‘Capas’ range is primarily made out of cardboard but also includes other materials such as marine grade plywood & leather for functional & structural purposes but also to add colour & texture. It came about when architect Luis Gomez Sui moved to Australia he had the idea to furnish his place with cost efficient materials he could made himself. As a paper & cardboard fan, he decided to take one of his former designs for a law firm back in Peru and recreate one of the pieces from that range but this time made out of cardboard.
The ‘Capas’ table is the third piece of the complete range complementing the ‘Capas’ chair and the ‘Capas’ stool. The table shows a nice contrast as a result from combining the rough natural cardboard and the clear glass top.
The ‘Capas’ table also comes with its surrounding belt, signature characteristic of the range. It was originally designed with no felt inserts in between cardboard layers, but these can also be customised in order to work within specific colour scheme requirements. The table can also be customised in height. In addition, the table comes in two options for its side panels: Marine grade plywood or Masonite. The buckle of the leather belt also comes in two different finishes: brushed brass or polished steel. The side panels in conjunction with the buckle finish give the flexibility that enables this piece of furniture to fit within a cooler or warmer room scheme.
