ART ON CHAIRS is an international event that promotes design and contemporary creativity as driving forces for innovation in industry and development across the board. An initiative by the „Portuguese Municipality of Paredes“ that seeks to reposition the territory as a reference in the production of high-quality furniture. „Art on Chairs“ brings together creation and production, culture and economy, local assets and global opportunities.
Like the dining chair, the design of the of the MAMMOTH dining table is inspired by great archaic shapes as found in mother nature. The design of table is a logical and consequent evolution of the chair.
The softly shaped tabletop matches perfectly with the chair. Generously harmonic outline makes it a multifunctional open stage for dinners, lunch breaks, working station, etc. Also the table follows the design language of a clean shaped top in contrast to the expressive legs. Instead of hiding all constructional elements, the table also offers some insights to its sophisticated structure.
