Kaona, abbreviation of Kaonashi: from japanese カオナシ, meaning "no face".
Kaona table arises as an investigation of circular and elliptical geometries through a very simple conceptual secuence of stretching transformations. An ellipse is obtained enlarging a circle, creating a bigger surface. By stretching four points of this new geometry four legs start to grow, putting the dining area in contact with the floor and solving it's functional requirements. As a result, a pure geometry becomes a new living object.
