Nature has always been an inspiration for many Japanese artists. In the past we have seen painters like Hokusai with The Great Wave or writers as Yasunari Kawabata, Nobel Prize for Literature in 1968, with his book The Lake. Today, designers are trying to reproduce in a small scale what Mother Nature has to offer. Tomoya Tabuchi is one of those.
FORK, his latest tables’ collection designed for Lapalma, recalls the branches of a big tree: firm, supportive and minimal.
A versatile project that can be used in the office, in the kitchen, in the living-room or in a restaurant. The leg system developed for FORK provides some common parts in die-cast aluminum: a structure that allows varying the configuration, playing on different finishes of legs or columns.
FORK is available in different materials, with different heights, shapes and finishes, both for the top and for the legs.
