Product description

Three tables are based upon the same formal origin as Polygon easy chair. The dominant triangular form is accentuated when viewed from the side, but once the observer begins to move, three triangles of the base overlap into complex three-dimensional drawings. The height and the surface of the top plates of the tables are counterpointed resulting in radical difference of inclinations of diagonal lines of the steel bars. Polygon low table comes in two new sizes. Lower table with diameter of 84 cm and higher one with 60 cm diameter. Table top can be made of solid wood, MDF with Fenix or HPL suitable for outdoor use. Construction of metal rods bent into shape of bracket makes an ideal match to a modernist typology of Polygon easy chair.

Concept

Evers since we first began to engage with design, we were fascinated with the standard modernist typology of chairs with modest dimensions that meet all functional parameters, without burdening the space with their bulkiness. We have explored a series of alternatives that are in line with these values, but also offer a new formal approach. Polygon retains all traditional elements of a modernist chair, but deconstructs them, creating new relations between them. The form of the bent steel bars of the structure, the seat and the backrest are coordinated via a triangular geometry. The composition of the triangle is accentuated when viewed from the side, but once the observer begins to move, these forms transform into hexagons and more complex polygons. We have continued to develop Polygon in close cooperation with prostoria, and have launched a new version of the chair that retains all features of the original design, but in an improved form. The resulting product has a somewhat defamiliarizing effect, seeming both familiar and distinctly contemporary.
