The Atlas Table, made of interlocking wooden segments, is a masterpiece to behold, both as a tactile object and a work of art. The geometric pattern was achieved by inlaying darker wooden pyramids into a latticework of oak cubes. The resulting triangle motif adds a sense of dynamism to an otherwise stationary furniture piece.
A lot of our work is about fascination, which is actually just a polite way of saying obsession. We work with these patterns that appear really simple at first, because they’re plain and geometric, but they become more and more complex the longer you look at them. Stephen Molloy, FUNDAMENTAL
I really feel its our responsibility when working with a beautiful material such as wood to honour the resource. Gunnar Rönsch, FUNDAMENTAL
We like to think of the customer one rainy Tuesday afternoon just looking at the table, and the story of its making and everything just slowly unfolding. So that months after the initial excitement of getting a new piece of furniture has died down, that you’re still peeling little slices of the story off for yourself and digesting them over time. Stephen Molloy, FUNDAMENTAL
