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 sequence of stretching transformations. An ellipse is obtained enlarging a circle, creating a bigger functional surface. By stretching four points of this new geometry four legs start to grow, becomming a new living object. By doing so, the dining area is conveniently lifted from the floor, solving it's structural and functional requirements.
Series limited to 100 signed and numbered copies. Each piece of furniture is packed in a wooden box for maximum care.
