« Une ellipse à deux foyers, une table à deux pieds » Jean Nouvel
This table is built around simple geometrical shapes: a round base cylinder for the round table, and an oval base cylinder for the oval table.
Returning to the principle of the trilith, the volume of the bases is divided into two distinct parts and emphasizes the constructive force linking the three elements.
The result is a central base consisting of two legs, tapered upwards to minimize the area of intersection between the legs and the top. The structural limit point is thus reached, while allowing for a significant overhang.
In addition, this division into two parts simplifies assembly and facilitates handling.
