Abacus is a table composed of a powder-coated steel structure and black medium tops. Abacus pushes conventions aside. The table tops glide and move freely along the structure without any constraints, leaving the user free to choose the layout. As the plates disappear, the structure reveals itself and becomes a graphic element that takes shape in space. From a dinner for two, to a family meal, the table is composed and broken down in a playful way. Abacus is a game of translation and composition between the different guests where the placements are random and change according to our needs and desires.
“Abacus” can be customised in different colours, materials, and lengths. Model shown is a black, 6 foot table in oak wood and steel.
Black powder-coated steel frame, Oak wood
Born in 1991, Belgian designer Pierre-Emmanuel Vandeputte received his master’s degree in industrial design from the ENSAV La Cambre in 2014. Following his graduation, he opened his design studio in the Brussels city center. Since the beginning of his professional career, Pierre-Emmanuel has been invited to exhibit annually in cities such as Copenhagen, Paris, and Milan. From conception to production, Pierre-Emmanuel imbues his designs with a sense of the surreal and a respect for craftsmanship. Each piece has a unique voice, and emotional power. Together, they speak to our more playful and curious nature, inviting us to live experiences unlimited by everyday expectations. His work is enigmatic, challenging what we consider to be evident in order to change habits and perceptions. His designs are indeed symbolic of an urge to break free from the mundane, to chase originality, while staying within the framework of the most noble materials.
Often the ordinary and visible present becomes vague and forgotten. Analogue experiences have boiled down to a minimum during the last years. We are currently in a situation where much of our regular rhythm was interrupted, the everyday was frozen and almost disappeared for a while. It became particularly evident how the environment we are functioning in, what we have or possess, matters. Layers of the past provide a means to describe the world and rethink the evident. Remembering and untangling the past and the local provides a captivating perspective through types of objects, materials, and methods of making.
The Estonian collection, “Revisiting the Past”, is based on tracking the everyday and the conventional, translating observations, reconsiderations, and hints of the past into contemporary design. More than ever, the future is about rethinking the present and the past, of what we have and need. The past is heavily coded in our future.
