Two Royal Designers for Industry, one from the world of furniture design, and one from the world of Formula 1 racing car design, collaborated to create the Surface Table, a super-slim composite table. A true engineering accomplishment, the incredible Surface Table uses state-of-the-art auto-sport technology to exploit the inherent rigidity and strength of carbon fibre.
The 2mm thick edge and long span defies the eye with its improbable lightness and solidity. Radius corners, round legs, domed feet and rounded edges accentuate the slimness and seamlessness of the design architect’s John Pawson’s work by Alison Morris. 20:50 plays with viewer’s perceptions of space by perfectly reflecting an entire room in a smooth black mirror of sump oil.
