The Aram Coffee Table was designed by Nendo for the manufacturer GAN.
Situated in Valencia, this Spanish company has been producing high-end furniture and textiles since the early 1940s. Born in Toronto, Canada, Nendo works primarily in Tokyo, where he has established himself at the forefront of Japanese design, regularly appearing on lists of the most influential new figures in the field. He has held numerous solo exhibitions in Milan, New York and London, and seen his work placed in the Museum of Modern Art, New York and the Museum of Decorative Arts in Paris. He has also lectured in several Japanese universities.
Standing 41cm high and 61cm in diameter, the Aram Coffee Table from GAN combines a chic, streamlined silhouette with a traditional wire-weaving technique that dates back generations. The weaving is dense in the upper sections, gradually becoming more open lower down to create a feeling of lightness and airiness. Each piece is handmade by skilled Indian craftsman, resulting in a subtly individual finish, and the design is available in a range of durable monochrome lacquers. Contemporary with a touch of the exotic, the Aram Coffee Table makes an eye-catching addition to conservatories and balconies.
