FRESHNESS | The Geo Cocktail Table by Vito Selma

Designer Vito Selma had this to say about the Geo Cocktail Table:

"If you look closely you’ll find they’re actually very still. Lines are stubborn things to pin down, so you don’t; you string them up. And while they insist on following a ‘linear’ track, it’s also very easy to fool them into bending a bit here and there in a hegemonic sort of oscillation. They’ll move only when you coax them, to form grids, blueprints, objects of the world.

My style is a play of lines, a test of the limitations of wood, and an evolution in itself. Showing the defined organic lines of the grain of wood is very important to me. The GEO cocktail table embodies this. It is inspired from STRING ART, the arrangement of lines between points to create a GEOMETRICAL PATTERN. By creating a more 3-D version of this art, it gives it more depth.

Depends where a viewer is standing, the look of the Geo transforms…from a DNA looking table base to a “winged” piece. It is an illusion of movement, especially when light is focused on it and shadows are casted. It is a piece that you really have to see to really understand its full concept." (via)
