In geology tectonics is the subject of the composition of the earth’s crust and its movements.
The designer Alain Gilles was inspired by the idea of moving plates for the Tectonic side table.
Tectonic therefore plays with the graphic idea of open and closed rooms and sets these into motion.
The tables evoke the impression of movement via their angular and slightly askew shape. The Tectonic table is available with a tabletop made of steel sheet or with a steel wire construction as the tabletop. While the steel sheet tabletop incorporates a calm aspect into the design, the steel wire tabletop creates the more intensive impression of movement. Tectonic with a steel wire tabletop also creates an optical effect, that looked upon from above a spectacular pattern is visible which evokes rose blossoms.
The angular shape of Tectonic enables the owner to create his own designs via the combination of several side tables. Symmetric combinations are possible, in which tables are connected to each other or in which the patterns are broken on purpose.
The combination of many tables intensifies the impression of the movement of the plates.
Both versions of the Tectonic side table by Bonaldo are also available with a height of 35 cm. Both can also be delivered in the colours black or red.
