Corail Dining Table by Roche Bobois was designed by Antoine Fritsch & Vivien Durisotti. This amazing dining table has accomplished a world first in furnishings – a development that is set to change the relationship between the public and creator. The table's base is produced using 3D-printed concrete and completely customizable. Once the "hereditary code" containing the base's qualities is embedded, the goliath printer – a wonder of innovation – begins to perform its magic. In a fluid upwards motion, the digitally operated spout distributes a ribbon of UHPC (ultra-high performance concrete) that becomes a solid structure as it layers out the design.
Another significant development is the software that clients can use at home or with an in-store guide to assist with the creation of the table: pick its shape and size, conclude whether to apply a weaving impact and where, and see their creation here and now. The subsequent "code" will take care of the 3D printer. As well as being customizable, this new procedure has expected environmental excellencies: it will be more effortless to send a computerized document to the US or China, where the base may be manufactured by a printer nearby that is outfitted with 3D capability. Thus, decreasing carbon output by eliminating overseas transport.
Its polypore shape is reminiscent of fungi found in trees, coral reef colonies, or colossal ornate shells. Corail is an magnificent table that celebrates the wonderous imperfections found in mother nature. Giving free rein to the creative mind of its designer. The base comes in five round and rectangular shapes, and clients can pick the contorting and weaving impacts that will make their piece special. The be speckled surface of the ultra-high performance concrete lets them entertain a wide range of choices prior to finalizing their creation. The glass top is available in different round or rectangle sizes, please inquire for details.
