To cut is a creative gesture. A cut divides, separates, and opens up a new vision of the world and its depths. Cracks, fissures, slashes if seen positively become windows, openings, passageways to go through, go beyond. The Net table has been designed around the concept of a crack. Depending on the observer’s perspective it can either block the gaze or let it through, seem light or solid, blend into its surroundings or stand out. Made from laser-cut carbon steel, the table is available in three different sizes and proportions.
