Einstein said “everything you can imagine, nature has already created”. In a historical moment in which the frailties of our planet are becoming more and more evident and the action of man is slowly crumbling the balance, we have sought inspiration for the creation of this piece of furniture in one of the most fragile ecosystems among the existing ones, an atoll, from which the project takes its name.
A piece of furniture, in addition to performing the decorative function, typical of design objects, can in fact be the vehicle of a more important message, sensitizing the end user to issues of great importance.
This object therefore brings to mind the natural conformation of an atoll, with its tongue of sand that closes in a circle, delimiting a crystal-clear water mirror. Hence, brass becomes a symbol of the finest sand, while painted steel reproduces the colors of the sea.
The perfection of the circle in which this table is tightened is finally interrupted by a deep gash, which cuts the central body revealing the internal stratification. This is a symbol of man’s action and how his intervention can break the fragile balance of the planet.
