With their Officina Tables, designers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec honor an ancient craft—forging and hammering iron to fabricate forms. Their goal was “to work with this ancient fabrication process and give it a new visual language,” says Erwan. The language is one of authenticity and thoughtfulness. “By reflecting the random, mechanical traces of the tools that gave them shape,” notes Ronan, “these pieces bring a breath of fresh air to the industrial scheme.”

Adds Ronan: “The subtlety of this project is that it uses these violent, strong gestures while at the same time the minimal use of materials and their finesse make it delicate.” The systemic nature of the geometrically shaped bases, available in different heights, allows them to support tops in various sizes, shapes, and a choice of materials.

“A designer should be able to observe and to understand the context.”
