ATLAS DINING TABLE

We chose a dining table as our first original product because that represents the place where people gather around and has an important presence in homes. Up until now, dining tables were mostly sold in Japan as a dining set, with one table and four chairs made of the same material and with the same style. However, in our daily life, various furniture and interiors from different periods co-exist. Things bought by love at first sight during a trip, things taken over from friends—those have sentimental values related to memories. Various furniture and decoration items collected little by little in the course of time. Atlas Dining Table is conceived to become a center piece of a dining room where each interior item resonates with each other. When we conceived the design of this table, we studied and analyzed all design and materials of each epoch. We finally took wood and metal on because they are the most classic materials for tables and chairs through all ages. Lots of things will happen around this table that will accompany the everyday life of a family, so it should not be warped nor tilted. While respecting those most important functions, we also paid attention to the quality of being in harmony with various types of chairs. As the result of all those considerations, we designed the legs in a T shape with exposed structures, and wider iron strips where strength is needed, to give to the table its singular characteristic.
