THE ASANA (warrior pose)
the warrior pose translated into form
Asana derived from the Sanskrit word = to sit down.
The Asana table was inspired by the exploration of Yoga and the human body.
Yoga combines strength, beauty and agility, and the Asana table was a starting point to see how certain yoga postures can impact the way an object is seen and manipulated .
This particular piece looked at the Warrior pose, which articulates a strong sense of form.
We wanted to create a piece that was light, yet strong graphically in its composition. The Warrior pose isthe first in a series of Yoga related design exploration- where we have manipulated the idea of a table by modifying its basic elements to create a balancing act.
Each elevation of the table creates a dynamic view point, from the cantilevered profile to the strong right angles.
When it came to material use, the idea was to capture a sense of duality. By combining mild steel with a slim glass lacquered top we managed to achieve a synthesis of the delicate with solid.
This table works for residential and commercial spaces, adding a focal point and a sense of drama to any surrounding.
