Structural expressionism brought to contemporary and functional furniture design.
System XIX is a high-tech table and chair set which unlike conventional tables, has only one leg in the centre of the table. It is held into place like a tensile structure thanks to the two stainless steel “X’s” that stop the table from bending and twisting. Inspired by the world of sailing and high quality nautical accessories, the 20mm thick wood is tapered to have edges just 5mm thick to emphasise the perception of lightness of the table.
Having studied, prototyped and conducted CAD simulations of the various loads and forces acting on the table, We were able to optimise the design of the table making it resistant to compressional and torsional forces. Meanwhile, the micro-laminated beech wood top which is 2 meters long and 90 cm wide is tapered down at the edges to just 5mm thick to enhance the perception of lightness and clean minimal lines.

The System XIX chair is a tensile structure too, with both, the backrest and seat not being fixed but able to pivot around their mounting pipes, held into place with stainless steel cables. This allows the backrest to have some degrees of rotation when you lean back, adapting to the angle of your back. The System XIX chair comes in two versions, one with armrests and the other without, to adapt to different spaces and uses and can be tailored to have different widths.
