Doris Dining Table - Oeuffice
KAPITAL is a series of limited edition tables and stools based on essential forms, reminiscent of primordial stone capitals and simple geometric assemblages commonly found in classical architecture. The distinct and characteristic profiles, proportions and details found in classical orders inspired these new OEVFFICE works as a simplified reinterpretation with a contemporary twist.
Traditionally, the capital (from the Latin caput, or “head”) forms the topmost member of a column. It mediates between the column and the load thrusting down upon it, broadening the area of the column’s supporting surface. The capital, projecting on each side as it rises to support the abacus, joins this traditionally square element with the usually circular shaft of the column. The capital may be convex, as in the Doric order; concave, as in the inverted bell of the Corinthian order; or scrolling out, as in the Ionic order.
Every composition from the KAPITAL COLLECTION is a combination of distinct forms using typical stones and marble sourced in Italy. The collection consists of different natural colours, and all variations are hand crafted in Italy with a unique unpolished texture. All objects are suitable for indoor and outdoor use and marble varieties and combinations can be customized upon request.
