Tables and open storage cabinets by a Swedish studio TAF
We all know what furniture is and what furniture does. Since early times furniture has been playing a key role in the way we deposit and arrange things. Shelves allowed us to store more, multiplying the ground place. Now, furniture still perform the same tasks but in another context. We now see furniture as a decorative thing in our interiors, and due to its new “obligation” furniture manufacturers try to make it as appealing as possible. An innovative thing in this industry is represented by the possibility of arranging different parts in different positions to suit the best way possible your needs.
Designed by Gabriella Gustafson and Mattias Stahlbom this family of low tables and open storage cabinets feature the exact same thing I was just mentioning. The supporting bases appear as weighty volumes, similar to rocks on which movable wooden cabinets combine Swedish craft and tradition.
The so called “trotters” storage units offer two different types of shelving with a wide range of combination one with another, allowing you to develop multiple display options. I would have to mention that the entire collection focuses on furniture’s feet, a very important constructive element that is very often forgotten. Those elements, in this collection combine marble legs with glass table tops, wooden legs with wooden tops, or a very elegant combination of porcelain legs, orange silicone pads and thick glass.
