Light table Size: 400mm x 400mm Materials: Cork & Polycarbonate Weight : 6 kg Photography : Christophe Desaphy & Nico Martin 'CUB': three letters in reference to the three edges of a triangle that appears in the corner of a square table. The concept emerged when frustrated with the lack of space on my bedside table, began considering ways in which I could get rid of his lamp, thereby freeing up the table’s surface for another use. Composed of sheets of cork, the table design is made from a sustainable material. The CUB invites you to touch its soft cork and you will be surprised by the lightness of this heavy-looking material. With a block opaque appearance, the light is hidden inside the table, only being visible through polycarbonate sheets that are inserted between the cork boards. A slice made into one corner reveals the unexpected geometry of a triangle, while the light being diffused around the edges plays upon the new found shape. Placed beside a bed, the table will emit more than enough light for reading at night, as well as somewhere for you to rest your book. In a living room, this minimal yet charismatic design creates an atypical bright atmosphere challenging the space in which it sits. Wherever it is placed, however, this unusual table will draw attention, create a soft ambient light and organize the space around it.
