Quadrado “Outdoor” Table
Marcio Kogan / studio mk27 design
Rationalist, minimal, designed by combining different materials and textures that enhance its linear shapes, the table features the element that characterises the Quadrado family on its top: a duckboard pattern.
Teak duckboard, used in the yachting industry to facilitate the outflow of water, was introduced in 2018 as a distinctive element of the articulated Quadrado modular seating system created by the Brazilian architect.
The table comes in three dimensions, and features a top set on aluminium legs, designed as two panels that cross it on the short side. It sports a striking Lava Stone Powder finish, generating an interesting contrast between the surfaces and the teak wood of the top.
A number of plug-in accessories, such as the candle-holder and the Lava Stone tray, mean the table can be set to match the occasion.
The Quadrado table can be used in different arrangements, perhaps forming part of a domino sequence or designing a frame round the trunk of a tree, as suggested by Marcio Kogan, as always in pursuit of an ideal relationship between his designs and the nature surrounding them.
