Sezgin Aksu sketches of Asymmetrical table for Colé.
Aksu/ Suardi presented this project for our first collection 2011 not without a certain concern. They had taken much into account Colé Moodboard and were in love with a craft table in an artist’s house in Paris. They said: “Our table always has metal legs and can also have the top in solid wood or even glass for a more minimal appearance, but it is not so static, it came out a table with legs that… Move! ”
We thought of all the places and all the houses that this table could have visited evoking the incredible walking cities of architect Ron Herron.
In the 60’s, British architect Ron Herron reinterpreted Le Corbusier’s famous notion of the house as a “machine for living” with this space-age fantasy of a city that would be fully automated and mobile. Powered by artificial intelligence, the urban landscape comprises numerous robot-like pods with legs that allow whole neighborhoods to roam the Earth and transport resources. In Herron’s mind, the peripatetic structures would also have the ability to combine with other self-contained modules to form large walking metropolises.
