In the geology Tectonic is the lesson of the building of the lithosphere and its movement.
The designer Alain Gilles was inspired by the Tectonic side table of the idea of moving plates.
Tectonic plays with the graphic of open and closed rooms and dislocates this in moving.
The tables get their expression of movement through the thick, a little bit moved shapes. The Tectonic Table is available with a plate of steel steel panel and with a construction made of steel wire as plate.
While the steel panel as plate incorporates a calm aspect into the design and the creates the expression of a leisurely moving of the plate, the steel wire construction seems tensed in not in a movement any more. Tectonic with steel wire creates also the optical effect, that it looks like a spectacular pattern, which reminds of a rose-blossom.
the angular shape of Tectonic makes it possible, to create an own design through combining more side tables. Symmetric combinations are possible, in which tables are connected to each other or in which the patterns are broken through 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 in a height of 35 cm available. Both can also be delivered in the colours black or red.
