Inspired by a shared minimalist approach and the creative use of the material with Japanese architect Tadao Ando, designers Laura Mochi Onori, Gaia Rebecchini, and Lorenzo Rebecchini have created the Tadao line for Forma & Cemento. This line consists of minimalist console tables or stools in different sizes. Each piece of furniture, like the work of the architect himself, is designed to emphasize the beauty of the space around it.
The Tadao table is a clean, minimalist design created with concrete set over steel. A protective coating finishes the surface texture making it suitable for indoor or outdoor use. From the front, the entire shape is sketched in three simple lines; from the side, a basic rectangle. A subtle curve thickens and emphasizes the sides and creates an elegant appearance which contrasts with the solidity of the concrete construction.
The largest table is 80cm high and the smallest is 44cm. The latter comes in a choice of three widths (40, 80, or 120cm) which makes it a great option for rooms where space is limited.
Italian company Forma & Cemento create sophisticated geometric designs which appeal to their metropolitan customer base. Despite the plain appearance of the Tadao, the craftsmanship which has gone into these tables is evident. The shape and style combine to make this table a work of art in itself.
