A New DTable (Deco) Prototype was presented at:
PARIS DESIGN WEEK 23,
We have been dreaming about this new direction on the DTable’s history and feel so strongly that it should be:
- Flat pack
- Low Cost / Affordable
In 1903 an English mathematician called Henry Ernest Dudeney worked out how to turn a perfect square into a perfect equilateral triangle by dissecting the square into 4 distinct shapes, these shapes can be rearranged to form the triangle.
Inspired by mathematics, DTable is a fully functioning 3d puzzle that translates its form into a fully flexible and adaptable low/coffee table. The cube-like form can be transformed into the triangle, showing off DTables’ clean lines and flexible geometries.
Long sweeping movements create a sense of energy in the table that invites the user to interact with it. DTable can be celebrated as the centrepiece of a room or is equally suited to sitting along a wall or in the corner of a room. Functions literally unfold as the table is opened. Great as a storage box when in square formation, DTable can hide your everyday life away inside its inbuilt storage.
The new DTable Deco was Designed in Paris, and we hope to manufacture in France, We take advantage of the latest manufacturing techniques to bring you the realisation of a century old mathematical formula.
During production we ensure that each DTable has a little impact on the environment and produces minimal waste. (cut from one sheet of ply) Every DTable is made from sustainably sourced wood, put through rigorous tests and is free from harmful toxins.
DTable measures 700 x 700mm when in square formation and 1060 x 1060 x 1060mm when in triangle formation. To enable simple transportation, each element of DTable can be manually detached using the simple hinge solution unique to DTable.
This concept is fascinating for us, and the possibilities are endless when applying the formula to the world of architecture and design. The Table we showed at this year at Paris Design Week / Masion Et Objet, is made from two types of Douglas Fir timber, plywood for the surfaces and hardwood for the structure.
There are 8 positions from square to triangle, so you can use the table in many different ways, it’s a playful piece and very adaptive, perfect for different events or spaces, and you can also use each table as a stand alone piece. This is the first prototype in a new generation of DTables, this is the first table to be flat pack and customizable with different worktops.
We are looking to partner with someone to produce a first batch of tables here in France.
Shout out to Matt & Duncan @BASE MODELS for building the prototype. thank you guys!
