The collective motion of a large group of self-propelled entities, converging and diverging in unplanned movements that are nonetheless cohesive, inspired a modular geometric table that can grow and change in any number of ways. Swarm Table by Florence design graduate Natalie Goldfinger captures the effect of movement and motion using a series of interlocking black and white triangles in a range of sizes.
Constructed from all natural and sustainable materials, the Swarm Table is made up of three elements that interlock: a small table, a long table and an angled ‘office desk.’ These individual tables can stand on their own, or they can be configured together, fitting into a whole like puzzle pieces.
The resulting configurations can function as dining tables, conference tables, or surfaces for offices and studios. Some of the larger wooden triangles that make up the surface of the table can be lifted out to create trays, or leave room for floor lamps or umbrellas.
The set will be produced by a Florentine artisan as a limited edition release.
