Krama Architects Creates The Konis Table

Krama Architects, the project leader of the highlighted design table by Krama Architects explains, The konis table's design was conceived from a fragment's detachment from the ground. This fragment represents a concrete slab, which is deconstructed while uplifted, thus exposing its steel elements. The Konis table was named after the ancient greek word meaning dust, plaster. This structure, consisted of wood, steel and plaster is indicative of the coalescence of physical materials as well as of an optical illusion concerning gravity. The singularity of the structure is based at the application of the plaster on its wooden surface, which lends weight to it like a hovering slab..
