Allumettes by Atelier Oï for Röthlisberger

The striking appearance of the Allumette sofa, table and chair is attributable to its filigree framework design in hardwood sourced from the Arura Vermelho tree. Here, forces and counterforces interplay to accept loads. Elegance and originality combine with stability. The non-varnished wood with its metallike tone is finely polished, allowing its sensual presence to develop fully. The Allumette sofa offers a high degree of seating comfort – and adds an extremely prestigious touch to living spaces and reception areas thanks to its sturdy and distinctive appearance.

The Colander Table by Daniel Rohr

The Colander Table was designed by a German designer Daniel Rohr.

The table is produced in a CNC milling process that starts with a piece of aluminum for the table top that weighs 408kg (900lb). The block of aluminum is milled down to a bowl shape with 909 holes in it. The 4 legs are made from one massive round aluminum bar. The complete timeline for producing one table from the first milling to the final polishing takes around 4 weeks.

You can watch a YouTube video of the production process – here.

The table will be a limited edition of 10 pieces.
