Sideboard Gerrit & Coffee Tables Brandt by NOOM
Two coffee tables of different height and a sideboard belong to the Bauhaus Furniture collection by Noom. The collection is dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus School in Germany. Ideas of functionalism and conciseness, the combination of craft and art, buildings and objects formed by a composition of simple geometric shapes, are still relevant. NOOM furniture is a tribute to the great thinkers who shaped the modernist principles and brought them to life.
– Once, while traveling, I noticed a rough brushed wall inside the elevator. It was an old loft building refitted in a modern way with a rooftop restaurant in New York. That brushing was made there on purpose to hide some profanity words and drawings that were on the wall.
What impressed me the most was the rough brushing by itself. It looked artistically, but at the same time told us a common story of the elevator which was in usage for several decades. It was a kind of creative destruction. That image of the surface with the traces of real life on it inspired me to use the brushed effect in our new furniture collection. We experimented a lot with the hand brushing and patterns and chose one which reminds of ripples on the water
– tells the designer Kateryna Sokolova.
Coffee Tables Brandt
While looking at these tables for the first time, you feel like seeing some basic element of the interior which is clear, familiar and understandable. However, the things in this edition are universal only in their functionality. The aesthetic game with geometry makes accents on familiar items. The tabletop is held by three cylindrical legs of different diameters. This gives asymmetry to the model, however, as much as it is appropriate in a concise manner. The unique hand rushed pattern on the stainless steel surface looks like ripples on the water.
The metal sideboard has four drawers and is contemporary, massive, and elegant at the same time. This is a kind of understanding of modernist aesthetics, where the subject consists of a group of simple geometric figures. The graphic drawing of the facade is formed by the notches between the drawers. Hand brushed pattern on the stainless steel surface looks like ripples on the water.
