We received photos and information about an interesting table design envisioned and implemented by Novae Architecture. According to the official press release we were sent, the office is dedicated to developing “an innovative design approach in a complex and sustainable dynamic of reality. NOVAE conceives form and space organization as a tool able to modify a real matter, in its physical and social implications, opening to the possibility of a reality where better opportunities and quality of life can be created. FOLDONE table expresses a new dynamic position, with a strong conceptual abstraction. It evolves in a continuum of folding surfaces, giving a contemporary spirit to space.
Dynamism and transformation are concepts which describe this design generated by research into the perception of movement: surfaces are folded, creating continuity, into functional spaces able to accommodate objects. A designed component as a new vision of furniture, where steel plays the role of a contemporary character”. [Photos and information provided via e-mail by Novae Architecture]
The Componibili Storage Unit was designed in 1968 by Anna Castelli Ferrieri for Kartell. A design classic, it is on show at New York’s MoMA and the Centre Pompidou in Paris. Functional, adaptable and smart, this hard-wearing and versatile unit has many uses around the home. Componibili units are stackable, available in round and square versions, varied sizes and several colors.
The String shelf system was designed in 1949 by the swedish architect and designer Nils Strinning. Easy to assemble and reposition, this well-formed system, with its ingenious design, is stable and functional. String® is available in several formats: the classic system, plex (launched in 1953), pocket (2005) and works (2014). The SH05 Arie shelf was designed by Arik Levy in 2008 for E15. The clever design enables a multitude of seamless combinations, made possible without any obvious visual repetition. Arie functions well as a bookcase, room divider, sideboard or storage unit.
