Wave (Table) by Attila Stromajer
2016 - 2017, Golden A' Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design Award Winner
I was inspired by the architecture of pyramid stairs and the movement of the waves. I wanted to create interesting and original 3D structures by using simple geometric forms. I multiplied and then rotated the frames. My objective was to build a static object in which the steps of transformation can be traced so that it incorporates and expresses the dynamism of change. I was also inspired by organic principles that can be static and dynamic at the same time, like water.
The shape of the table resembles the stairs of the pyramids or the form of waves. Beside being a static object, it also gives us the impression of dynamic motion by the fan-like rotation of the parts. It provides a new visual experience from every different angle. Another unique attribute of the piece is that it does not contain any fittings or stiffenings. It holds itself. It unites angularity and softness. The sights of this table is different from every pespective symbolize varied of nature.
Design Challenges
Only two materials, wood and glass are used. To create an airy and natural effect we had to avoid using any supporters or mounts. Finding the precise joining points and the object’s fulcrum was also challenging. Besides, we had to find the ideal size and place the glass top exactly horizontally. We needed to find the balance between the angular shapes and the lightness of the object to reach its harmony.
Production Technology
The table was made of ash wood. Natural colour varnish was applied on the surface. The wooden structure and the large tempered glass top meet only on a thin surface. It was made without the use of any fittings or stiffenings. The structure holds itself. It gives stability and at the same time strengthens its lightness and airiness. The bright natural colouring gives the structure lightness, which balances the stability and rigidness of the angular forms.
