Tavoli che camminano (Walking tables) is a series of small tables, of different dimensions, entirely made of powder-coated steel. Each table has its own height and width and therefore each one can be used for a different function: as side tables, coffee tables, or in any other way wanted. They can also be combined together to create each time a new composition of shapes and colors. Since “Tavoli che camminano” are only made of just one material, that is recyclable practically ad infinitum, they are very sustainable.
This project is a research on the expressive possibilities of shape and its ability to generate a sensation of movement and action even in complete stillness. The tables are slightly inspired by zoomorphic shapes and are born from an ironic pun on the word furniture, “mobile” in Italian, which means “something that can move”. Therefore, if a piece of furniture can be moved, can tables walk? This playful and ironic aspect is highlighted by the choice of using a wide range of pastel colors to paint the ” Tavoli che camminano “.
