Vora

Info

Palau, 2013

The Vora table is a dynamic and changeable object that is more than just a table; it is a place to connect, work, interact and get together.
The flexibility offered by the table allows for the formation of spontaneous and dynamic environments for working, living and recreation. Depending on the needs of the user, clusters of multiple tables can be arranged in such a way as to perform different tasks, resulting in a rich mix of possibilities.  The table creates a hybrid ‘inclusive’ landscape in which it can serve as a personal desk, a meeting table, a dinner table, a home office or public table. As clusters of tables are connected in different ways, they open up to show and reveal different functions and uses. Dynamic edges create a graphic play between the top and sides of the table and set new boundaries within a space, creating a strong spatial experience.
