Constantinople table set
This product is currently sold out.
A nesting table set of polarizing features, originally inspired by today’s political arena of dividing sides. The ancient city of Constantinople, now current day Istanbul, is known as one of the most polarizing cities in the world, with a history of diversity and contradictions. Designer Kirk Van Ludwig muses over how nice it would be for opposites to somehow get along.
The Constantinople nesting tables demonstrates how two objects very different in geometry, colour, weight, and materials, can cohesively work together. Made to size and fit to its environment, the whitened Ash round sits on three asymmetrical acrylic one-inch thick legs while the torched Vancouver Island Douglas Fir square sits on two one-and-a-half-inch acrylic legs slightly offset. The result is a harmony of carefully considered materials and shapes.
Much like its namesake city, the Constantinople nesting tables form a centre point for its living space with both pieces working harmoniously together. Designed by Kirk Van Ludwig.
