Gustav Düsing: Spaceframe TablePosted: July 4, 2012
Gustav Düsing’s Spaceframe Table uses structural elements as aesthetic components creating line work that changes per the viewers position. The table takes on both industrial and graphic qualities through its transparent construction and balanced composition. Its reference to architectural supports communicates strength, a natural quality of the chosen ply material.
From Gustav Düsing: The coffee tables are a direct translation of downscaled architectural elements. The principles are based on “space-frame-structures” which can often be found in large-scale infrastructural buildings (airports / train-stations). Stability is provided through three-dimensional cross-bracing which, in turn can also be used as a diagonal shelving system. Through the adaptive qualities of these structures, the table comes as a single unit as well as a multiplied version of two, four and more. All Fotos by: Johannes Foerster
