Chromosome X (Dining Table) by Helen Brasinika
2012 - 2013, Golden A' Furniture and Homeware Design Award Winner
Inspiration
The table belongs to the chromosome family dining tables. Chromosome X, draws its inspiration from chromosome X and its importance in determining genetically female gender.
Creativity
A Dining Table designed to provide seating for eight people, who interact in arrow arrangement. The top is an abstract X, made of two different pieces accentuated by a deep line, while the same abstract X is reflected on the floor with the base structure. The white structure is made of three different pieces for easy assempling and transportation. Moreover, the contrast of teak veneer of the top and white for the base was selected to lighten the lower part giving more emphasis on the top.
Design Challenges
Desire for a sculptural value to this piece of furniture . Potential to provide seating from eight to 12 people. Perfect match with dark wood or flooring material. A top that would be treated naturally with bees wax to be protected from stain, and not varnished with chemicals and VOC emitting substances.
Production Technology
The structure is lacquered wood for the legs, and pressed teak veneers for the top.
