Patch Tables by Note Design Studio and Norm Architects for Menu
Updated: Jan 16, 2020
"Patch Tables were put together from leftover pieces of floor stone in Milan. Almost randomly the different slabs of marble in a variety of qualities and colors came together in a beautiful disordered pattern, that made it into the most beautiful graphic artwork.”, Kristoffer Fagerström explains.
The thought of using this normally elevated and luxurious material in a more casual way became the starting point of this collaborative project between Note and Norm.
The result of the project is a set of 3 small occasional tables, ranging from the size of a regular sofa table to the size of a large centerpiece of tray. The inspiration from the floor has become a decorative tabletop surface composed of different slabs of marble that makes Patch Marble Tables into mass produced individuality.
Each individual table has its own character and tension between the natural pieces of marble laid out in a graphic pattern, echoing the tiled tables of the 1970s in a new and contemporary way. ”In the process of designing the tables we played with the idea of micro furniture”, says Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen of Norm Architects. ”We wanted to create something that was in between furniture and accessories with a multi-purpose in the home”.
