Splinter Works | RIMA Coffee and Side Tables: A Lesson in Geometry

Furniture 140414_Splinter-Works_026

Splinter Works continue on their mission to make the everyday extraordinary, with the release of the Rima coffee and side tables. Characterised by their elegant use of geometry, they are subtle with a signature playfulness.

140414_Splinter-Works_022The starting point was the very simple, recognisable shape of a rectangular two dimensional table top, which when developed in three dimensions, has been sculpted and tapered to create a refined and honed shape.

140414_Splinter-Works_027This slimming and inward curving of the table legs not only reduces the visual impact of the large piece of furniture, but it also gives more space for your feet while sitting around it.

140414_Splinter-Works_017The form has also been dissected; the rima reveals the glowing red interior and a slice of light but it also offers the opportunity to split the table if desired for flexibility of arrangement. When in its whole form, the two pieces are held apart by clear dowels in a constant state of equilibrium.

140414_Splinter-Works_003With the side tables, the wooden curve seen in the coffee table has been split and made taller, and the rima has morphed from a void into a solid, albeit clear, plane of toughened glass which holds the two sides together and triangulates the base.

140414_Splinter-Works_034The sister works echo and complement each other but are also strong stand-alone pieces. Both are available in alternative sizes, colours and wood selections upon request.
