Crash Table (2023)
Made by Zieta Studio
The CRASH TABLE materializes Zieta Studio’s concept of the controlled loss of control. What appears accidental is in fact the result of a carefully planned process. The steel tabletop is supported by inflated steel legs that seem to be crushed by its weight. This “swashbuckling” CRASH TABLE is the first project made of satin Inox steel. It does not reflect light like polished steel, so the attention is focused on the very form of the table, minimalist and extravagant at the same time.
The CRASH TABLE is the embodiment of lightweight engineering. The technically advanced, topologically optimized tabletop is invisible to the eyes, but it is the structural core of the object that retains its strength andvolume with less weight. The outer shell of the table, with legs made of reinforced steel profiles, is an artistic emanation of the optimization and discretization process hidden inside the object.
