* 루버 테이블 [ Thomas Schnur ] Rubber Table

고무테이블
테이블 고무발이 어디서 많이 보던것과 닮아 있네요.
실생활에서 얼마큼 효용성이 있을지는 모르지만
실험적인 아이디어가 돋보이는 작업이에요.
Cologne 2011: German designer Thomas Schnur presented this table with suction cups on the legs as part of [D3] Design Talents at imm cologne last week.

Called Rubber Table, each product has five legs and an irregularly shaped top, moulded from dyed foam rubber.

Rubber Table

The drain or toilet plunger is an item, which, though it receives little attention, is actually extremely useful. Rubber Table adopts its idiosyncratic aesthetics and transfers them to a new environment. The rubber plunger has become a table leg – setting in motion a new way of looking at this ambivalent object. Manufacturing it from dyed foam rubber preserves the color and the feel of the original object.

In my projects I always attempt to negotiate with the product I am to design. I negotiate on the weighting of materials, manufacturing, appearance, meaning and function. I break down this task into its characteristics and meanings. I then analyze, assess and construct the idea.

In this, it is important to me that despite their cross-references, the products, which are often created from familiar fragments, are able to development the greatest possible degree of autonomy. In this way, they allow for associations but, beyond this, develop their own potential for becoming autonomous products.”
