An exhibition of Frida Kahlo's paintings led to a further investigation of her life and work. One of the sentences used to describe Kahlo's marriage to Diego Rivera was "It is like a wedding between an elephant and a dove".
This sparked the inspiration for the design of the table.
The relationship between the table's elements is about connections; Between two different worlds - between two different materials, shapes, textures, between two different temperatures, weights, masses, hues…
These differences result in one coherent whole, as the two lie within each other. The final product is simple, clean and elegantly designed.
