Catena (Coffee Table) by Ayça Sevinç Tatlı
2012 - 2013, Bronze A' Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design Award Winner
The almost standard rectangular shape of coffee tables inspired me to create an L-shaped coffee table which is comfortable to have some snack on the table while sitting on the floor. I have been also inspired by an aesthetic figure, a rectangle with circular edges, on a wallpaper and I used it as the basic shape of each part.
A coffee table consisted of four side tables. The unusual placement of side tables composes the L shape of the coffee table, which is an original form for coffee tables. The load bearing elements of each side table is formed, by using different combination of the same shape. This simple shape, a rectangle with circular edge, is also the form of each side of the coffee table, so the form of each side table and cofee table is different but related.
