TRIADA is a trio of tables for Spanish furniture brand Andreu World. The collection includes a stackable bar table, a stackable dining table, and a height adjustable occasional table, and takes its name from the signature tripod-style leg. Designed in response to the need for more flexible furniture, the tables can either be stacked for storage or adjusted in height to transform their application.
The TRIADA collection demonstrates how an expressive form can finesse industrial die-cast aluminium and imbue the utilitarian material with a sense of elegance. The tripod-style legs have a subtle sculptural quality that gives the tables an ownable expression without it being overbearing. The soft impression is deepest at the foot of the leg and flows gently towards the central stem, reminiscent of the hand of an artisan working with a natural material, such as clay. This sensitive approach gives the tables a crafted aesthetic that sets them apart in a market saturated by a stricter, more technical visual language.
The challenge was to create a table with an effortless visual language that would stand the test of time, yet with an impactful identity to prevent it from getting lost in a crowded market.
