*GQ SIDE TABLE (2023.7)*
* Cantilever type side table made of different materials such as stainless steel, thick leather, and wood. *
A cantilever type side table made of different materials such as stainless steel, thick leather, and wood.
Because it is small and light, it is easy to carry and can be used in a variety of situations.
The simple structure of the narrow stainless steel frame gives it a modern look, while the decorative curved ribs cut from the thin flat bar give it a classic feel. The rim, which originally played a role in supporting the strength of the structure, was used as a design element, and what makes this unique form even more appealing is the presence of thick leather wrapped in stainless steel. Not only does it look warm, but by wrapping thick leather around the parts that are touched by hands or bare feet, it gives the user a sense of
relaxation.
In order to create the beautiful look of the thick leather integrated with the thin stainless steel frame, the stitching is a delicate process that can only be done by hand to create a sharp finish without making it stand out. The exquisite balance of stainless steel and thick leather created in this way brings out fun and movement in the space.
The thick leather wrapped around the stainless steel frame is hand-sewn one stitch at a time by skilled craftsmen.
The form is composed of soft organic curves, adding a gentleness to the cold appearance of stainless steel, creating a classic atmosphere. *DESIGNER*
