The stylistic vocation of Xavier Lust is to give form to metal, while Pianca’s special expertise lies in giving form to wood. These are the coordinates of Confluence, a table that has the dynamic elegance of geometry in motion.
Born through this partnership between Pianca and designer Xavier Lust, the Confluence table recently won the NYCxDesign award in the Furniture (Tables) category.
Confluence comes in different geometric forms: circle, rectangle and ellipse. It is a strong design idea that sets out to interpret spaces in different styles, playing with form, proportions, the expressive impact of materials.
The steel sections of the structure open in an original three-dimensional way, and the force of the material conveys a sense of sinuous lightness. The passage from horizontal to vertical is smooth, embodying the idea of space that seems to infinitely cycle. The placement of the top is the concluding gesture of a harmonious design.
Presented by the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) in New York, NYCxDesign awards is a global design competition celebrates outstanding talent across major areas of design such as architecture, interiors, furnishings, lighting, and technology.
