The ‘Collage Tables’ by Alain Gilles for Bonaldo is basically a superposition of the hand sketch drawing of the table onto the final product itself.
Hens, the “sketch” representing the concept of the Collage Tables has been directly manually reproduced in 3D with a permanent marker. This creates a discussion between concept and reality. The full elements are hatched, because of the sense of direction created, the movement and thus the logic of the original “Collage tables” is further highlighted.
These modular sofa tables have something to do with memories, vivid memories of odd shapes spotted in unusual places…. Or, how existing, recycled shapes, can give birth to a concept, a movement and new functionalities. It is the persisting image of an awkward collection of frameless mirrors of various sizes and obviously belonging to different eras that caught my eyes on a flea market and eventually gave birth to this collage of tables. Just like a “collage” art piece, these fragments of mental images have been extracted out of their original context and functionalities, and reassembled in order to generate a new entity with new function. In some versions, the concept of the collage is further emphasized by the used of different colors/material per “module”.

The concept of the buzziHive is a sheet, a protective sheet, wrapped around two seats. It follows the work logic of today, where people need to have instant meeting sessions… they could just take two seats, but in this case, they get an extra protective wall around them for a more a more quiet and peaceful conversation.
The buzziHives are little cells that remain open and welcoming and that can be used as a stand-alone pieces or in groups where they truly reveal their personalities and create this impression of a little “hive”.
The walls, the protective sheets that serves as sound insulation, looks like it is a door partly open. The BuzziHive are always partly open, but because of the movement generated by their outer shell, they can be seen as an invitation for people to come in. Read More…
