a monthly round-up of the world's best interiors and design stories
Bomers' Nr.1 is a dining table resembling an old big tree carrying his roof of leaves.
The table top is made out of second hand, 200-year-old oak wood. The branches below make an appearance as they come up through it before being cut off, flush with the surface representing the leaves. The branches are made out of hand curved steel bars spread over a large area at the base, tapering towards the middle, and then branching out to a wide palette above at the top, the stand of this table resembles a tree in every respect.
This design is going back to the root of structural engineering, taking cues from the environment - in particular, a tree with many branches. The concept idea is clearly visible in the finished product, and works as a derivative of a real too.
