The most exceptional material used is a hexagonal table top out of polished aluminium. Alexander Girard, famous as big designer of fabrics, colours, patterns and textures, equipped it with a tree-dimensional triangle pattern, which is able to mirror the incoming light as geometric pattern on the walls.
This specialty and the playful effect counteract the cool materiality of this piece, whose remarkably sprayed four-leg frame is also made of aluminium die casting. These qualities make the Vitra Hexagonal Table a special highlight in rooms, since curious glimpses are assured as well as when it was presented in the 1960s.Also in our blog:
