swedish design / architecture studio claesson koivisto rune (CKR) has designed ‘snowflakes’, a series of side tables for swedish company OFFECCT. the starting point for the work came from photographer wilson bentley, who devoted his career to capturing snowflakes with his camera, fascinated by the fact that ‘every (snow) crystal is a masterpiece of design and no one design is ever repeated.’

 

CKR has translated this natural phenomenon into tables. the computer aided production method used to produce the tables achieves the same variations in form that is found in snowflakes – each one displaying a unique design. ‘snowflakes’ were presented at stockholm furniture fair 2010.
