Dancing Tables by Joel Escalona

April 23, 2009

Mexican designer Joel Escalona will be exhibiting his Dancing Tables at the 2009 International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) in New York. They will be featured as part of the ICFF Studio, which was conceived as a way to help young and promising designers with prototypes hook up with the ICFF’s manufacturer attendees.

Escalona’s tables are inspired by Mexican traditional dances and dresses.

From Joel Escalona:

The goal was to design something inspired by culture and folklore, in this case Mexican’s. In a place with such a variety of colors and folklore like Mexico, is very difficult to take all and combine it in one piece, so I look at some of our dresses and colors and try to capture the shapes made by dresses in movement in order to design the Dancing Table.
