The dining table is available in different shapes and dimensions, with the top in glass or lacquered aluminium sheet and perforation lines evoking thread braiding....
Structure in aluminium with epoxy lacquer finish, col. light grey, and polyethylene thread, col. grey and Chine beige. Top in perforated metal col. light grey.
Stephen Burks is one of the most recognized American industrial designers of his generation. He considers design to be an expression of historic and cultural identity. To demonstrate this philosophy he collaborated with Roche Bobois on the creation of the Traveller collection, a pair of armchairs that symbolizes the transatlantic nature of the partnership. While sharing some characteristics, the American and European versions differ in ways that reflect the different furniture traditions histories of each continent.
