The 1915 Low Table by Teruhiro Yanagihara

May 15, 2009

Japanese designer Teruhiro Yanagihara has created the 1915 Low Table.

This set of stackable low tables was created for the exhibition ‘complementary colours’ at Milan Design Week 2009. The thin steel bars that support the structure appear to be randomly placed, but are positioned in a specific way to keep the table balanced and stable: Always two diametrical bars are orientated at an angle of 90 degrees to each other and thus compensate the forces in the structure: This principal is reflected in the applied color scheme: The bars facing each other are painted in complementary colours. Corresponding to the forces in the structure, these colours neutralise themselves: They turn to grey when mixed together, leaving the white boards hover in space.
