Nanook Low Table

Design: Philippe Bestenheider (2008)

Dimensions: 23.5x24.8x13.5in (WxDxH)

It reflects a study of the passage from two to three dimensions based on observing the tanning of a quadruped’s hide. This taut skin evokes memories of the animal it once was. The same skin, pleated, gives us the three-dimensionality of a chair or armchair. The structure is a hexagonal network inspired by molecular geometry or a snowflake. The natural form of a skin for the chair’s upholstery. The rigorous geometry of Nature for its structure. Like the Inuit peoples who wear animal skins for protection, Nanook’s technical-fabric upholstery has tribal echoes. The pleated, three-dimensional skin is transformed into a contemporary object through the use of digital printing for the upholstery, and moulded synthetic material for the structure. Nanook seating – whose name derives from the protagonist of the first nature documentary in film history – preserves tribal memories while looking to the future and to technology with the same optimism with which Nanook observed his icy environment.”

Top is sheet steel, legs are tubular steel with powder coat finish or polished gold chrome finish.
