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. The design was unveiled, along with La Chance’s debut ‘Jekyll and Hyde’ collection, during this year’s Salone del Mobile at MOST.
More about the design:
‘Float low table is a large turned over cone that looks like floating on a stretch of water. The designer’s intention behind this project was to create a functional object exploring in details the metal leaf turnery technology. Thanks to this technology it’s possible to create circular volumes in various dimensions which are normally used for the aircraft components. Float has a very simple shape which let you play with the shades of lights between the cone’s intense color and the reflective steel base making it a scenographic object and a large useful piece of furniture for the living area.’
