Co-moulded polyester resin tabletops decorated with the patterns used in kimonos. An aesthetic which is elegant and defined, inspired by Ukiyo, one of the most well-known cultural movements of the 18th Century. Related to shintoist realism, which states that nothing can remain unchanged for long, Ukiyo , living every moment to its fullest as a way to reach eternal life, as contradictory as that may sound. From this perspective, flowering becomes the most joyous, radiant period when the maximum amount of energy spreads all around. However, no one can say whether the just bloomed flower will still be alive a moment later.
Base is tubular steel with glossy red RAL 3003 powder coat finish, tops are molded polyester resin with embedded traditional Kimono fabrics; round top can be reversed and used as a tray.
