Japanese artist-cum-designer Tokujin Yoshioka pays special attention to the fundamentality of things in his latest collection for Desalto.
May 9th, 2013
Debuting at the recent Salone Del Mobile in Milan, Yoshioka’s collection of tables are a study in balance, both materially and visually.
Seeming to defy gravity, the Element Collection’s beauty lies in the precariousness of its compositions. Concerned with reducing all form and adornment to its most basic state, Yoshioka has frequently worked in spatial and decorative domains, producing installations and commissioned pieces for the likes of Swarovski, with many pieces in permanent museum collections.
In his collection for Desalto, these cantilevered tables employ advanced, quite involved engineering to produce what appears quite straightforward. The pieces are part sculpture, part functional furnishing.
Desalto’s Element Collection offers an extensive range of items including rectangular boardroom & dining tables (up to three metres long), as well as round and square occasional tables, bistro tables and a totemic chair to complement the range.
Available in black or white with tops finished in textured steel, natural Oak, lacquered MDF or in opaque black, white or colour-backed toughened glass with satin surface finish.
