Doric Coffee Tables are minimalist espresso tables developed by Copenhagen-primarily based studio GamFratesi for Gubi. Introduced throughout 3daysofdesign, the espresso tables aspect a vertical fluting closely resembling its namesake: the Doric column. Greek and Roman architects employed grooves to existing a extra rounded profile although keeping rhythm and stability to the variety.

Not compared with the Danish-Italian duo that make up GamFratesi, the desk is an expression of dualities, harmoniously merging opposing traits into a solitary, coherent expression. The desk will be out there in two measurements and in two varieties of pure stone: travertine or limestone.

Stine Gam and Enrico Fratesi make clear, “By reinterpreting a element of Classical architecture, the Doric Tables carry the excess weight of record into a contemporary environment. The certain shape of the leg manages to be rigid and official but at the identical time attractive and comfortable. In the fluted depth, a stable stone ingredient gets to be ornamental, whilst retaining the overall geometry of the layout.”
