Bold, inverted conical sphere seems to balance on its apex in Luca Nichetto‘s latest table design for the recently-launched French furniture brand La Chance. Aptly named ‘Float’, the seemingly simple, uncomplicated form of the table has been achieved thanks to the complex metal leaf turnery technology which is normally employed in aircraft production. Featuring a reflective, mirrored base, ‘Float’ is available in two colour versions: high-gloss Lamborghini yellow or sombre matte grey aluminium finish.

Named after ‘a phonetic transposition of the Japanese word for “tray”’, ‘Torei’ can be arranged and grouped in multiple combinations or used individually, according to need.
