Playing With Perception


From one angle, it appears stoic and strong. From another, it seems as delicate as a house of cards. Belgian designer Alain Gilles’ Barry table for Miniforms plays on the changing visual perception of its three elements: thin metal sheet legs and a tabletop with a deeply chamfered edge. The curve on the legs serves a structural purpose – adding strength and stability. At the same time, the curved cutaway corners give the impression that the table is resting on very little – testing the limits of stability. Barry is available as a rectangula­r table, or a round one with three legs. Multiple sizes are available, with the choice of terrazzo or wood for the tabletop. In Singapore, Miniforms is available from Royal Interiors and Xtra.
