FLOW BOWL, design by Nendo
“A table to support something and a container in which it seems to melt”.
From a joint project with Nendo firm comes flow bowl, a system of coffee tables and furniture complements. The salient trait of this project is the table top that seems to melt and flow down to form acontainer, as if it is unaware of the minimal steel structure it is rested on. Fluid and enigmatic, top and container achieve a fusion of form and function. The interplay of volumes has given life to fresh, unprecedented forms, endowing the tables with anew function thanks to the presence of bowls/containers. Nendo's flow bowl tables come in different shapes and sizes and are suitable for many different uses: from the coffee table to the console table, from the table container to the side tables available in two sizes.
The contrast between the rigid, geometric structure and the softness of the tops and the bowls, shaped by the light, also characterises the flow bowl vases; proposed in 3 different shapes, theyare veritable decorative elements.
All items making up the flow bowl family feature a steel structure painted in a choice of colours -white, metallised grey and graphite grey -, with tops and containers made of polyurethane paintedthe same colour. Neutral and stylish finishes lead the entire collection to fit all types of environment.
