shape shifter. The Paradox Nesting Tables were created exclusively for Design Collab—a CB2 collaborative that brings us together with like-minded souls and design institutions. Design Collab No. 1 debuts small–space solutions by 12 students in the Designed Objects curriculum at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC). SAIC student Arianna Petrich envisions "these three nesting tables can be pulled apart to form a graphic configuration that appears to be a three-dimensional cube." Designed for creative and versatile arrangements, the tables can be scattered or nested together as one low coffee table. Creating slick pools of color, liquid enamel is hand-applied to the surface in shades of olive, emerald and neon peach. Each geometric form is elevated on a sculptural base of black powdercoated iron, angling graphic shapes with every configuration. Learn about Design Collab No. 1 on our blog.
