Okha: The 2019 Side Table Collections
Okha are innovators when it comes to interesting furniture designs and concepts brought to life. Here we share their latest 2019 collections of side tables and the inspiration behind each piece…
The LEAN side table is a simple interlocking construction of three elements. The two vertical and diametrically opposing elements of the timber base slot into one another, each supporting the other; each unable to stand without the other. The circular top, which can be of glass, stone or brass, is a flat disc that sits in a recess provided by the timber base. The beauty of the table lies in its simplicity, in the reliance and relationship of one form upon another to create the whole.
The MAGNIFICO collection of tables focus on the beauty of natural materials and their inherent unique qualities. The material palette is raw, yet sumptuous, the materials express themselves with complete clarity.
RATIONAL uses four planes of mild steel, which speak of absolute reductionism, of pragmatic form and the RATIONAL.
“I wanted to create the simplest table I could, going through a complex process to achieve this. This meant relying on my selection of materials as well as the way light and shadow impact on form.” – Adam Court
IRRATIONAL is the same four flat planes, the same dimensions, the same composition but due to the methodical negative space that brings to mind the industrial processes of Prouvé; Irrational takes on a completely different persona. The table plays on light, with the concept of maximum / minimum, simple and complex.
The heavily wire-brushed larch timber is stained to a carbon black finish and contrasts with the beaten brass or copper. The timber base of FRAGMENT is juxtaposed with the simple, flat disc top.
The name DELTA is taken from triangular form of the lower section of the table. Delta communicates strong geometrics that oppose and co-exist. As with many OKHA products, the range of materials is kept narrow and is grounded in a selection of natural finishes, in this case larch timber, marble and granite with the option of glass or metal triangle sections.
