London designer AndViceVersa hand welds function and form with their table and chairs set.
Art and function merge in A-Cute, a sculptural table and chair set, created by London deisgn firm AndViceVersa. When not in use, the table and chairs fit seamlessly together to form a cohesive, multifaceted sculpture. The set’s design melts the boundary between function and form, enabling the dining set to serve as a work of art in addition to its duties as a piece of furniture.
Similar to an origami kraft, the table and chair art object is hand-folded. The A-Cute table and chairs are made from digitally prototyped metal sheets, which were then folded and welded by hand into the geometric, solid final product. Italian-made, the set is available with a few different numbers of chairs and increasing larger tables to fit them underneath. They offer versions with two, six, and eight chairs.
