Israeli-born Boaz Cohen and Japanese-born Sayaka Yamamoto, the designer duo behind the Eindhoven-based practice BCXSY have realised this series of simple side tables called ‘Contrast.’ Part of a three-piece collection developed by BCXSY in collaboration with an Irish maritime cultural and educational centre Meitheal Mara, the construction of table was inspired by the traditional boat-building process while its clean lines and geometric form seem to hint at the Bauhaus aesthetics.
More about the table:
‘“Rule number one of a boatyard is that you never have enough clamps”. In times of need, improvised clamps are made of only two pieces plywood. These clever artefacts were our inspiration while developing the Side-Tables and Stools, by which the top plate is clamped between two vertical plates. The outer surfaces of the plywood are removed, revealing the less regularly placed wooden layers, making each and every piece unique.’
