a monthly round-up of the world's best interiors and design stories
VOLT is a table with integrated legs and table top. The legs seem to be part of the top and the top seems to be part of the legs. Faceted surfaces and at the same time a fluid, continuous shape. Dynamic, and at the same time minimal. A table with a form that seems impossible like an Escher drawing. It continues to fascinate due to its elusive appearance. And last but not least: it’s by all means a practical table with four legs and space for six chairs. VOLT is 75cm high (2.5 ft) and the table top measures 220cm (7.2 ft) by 100cm (3.3 ft). The table is spray-painted and can be produced in various colours. At the Salone del Mobile taking place from April 14-19, VOLT will be part of an exposition of a group of promising Dutch designers. This will take place in the new Salone area of Lambrate among other cutting edge exhibitors. The designers of this group present their work to find international points of sales and design brands. VOLT is designed by Reinier de Jong and manufactured in collaboration with BOM interiors, a company specialising in made to measure furniture for both private and professional market. Reinier de Jong works on both architectural and product design. Key words are subtlety, flexibility, ingenuity and spaciousness. Reinier de Jong has designed several acclaimed furniture designs and award-winning architectural designs.
