seen at the nude exhibition of the valencia furniture fair 2011, this project caught immediately our attention:
barcelona-based studio 3patas (carla neila, isabel gonzález, santiago hermosín) presents ‘3×3,’ created in collaboration
with spanish design brand francesc ros. enabling users to define their own space, the elements of this table set can be arranged
in various configurations or neatly combined to form a family. the main large table contains two smaller ones, which can be
removed for independent use. in the absence of the smaller tables, two perfectly fitting bowls can be placed in the holes,
modifying the table’s functionality to expand available surface area.
the table’s design also permits all legs to be removed, allowing the components to be easily transported or stored.
the designers explain: ‘after researching different users, we found that in many cases, they were living with limited space (such as inner city lofts)
and were searching for solutions which could adapt to their various requirements. whether it be entertaining friends, having a coffee,
watching TV or simply eating dinner, the adaptability of 3×3 makes the table an attractive solution for these users.’
