Here's some more text from Reinier de Jong:


The new table design named VOLT by designer Reinier de Jong is ready. The table will be on show at the design fair Salone del Mobile in Milan which takes place in April.

VOLT is a table with integrated legs and table top. The legs seem to be part of the top and the top seems to be part of the legs. Faceted surfaces and at the same time a fluid, continuous shape. Dynamic and at the same time minimal. A table with a form that seems impossible like an Escher drawing. It continues to fascinate due to its elusive appearance. And last but not least: it’s by all means a practical table with four legs and space for six chairs. VOLT is 75cm high (2.5 ft) and the table top measures 220cm (7.2 ft) by 100cm (3.3 ft). The table is spray painted and can be produced in various colours.

At the Salone del Mobile taking place from April 14-19, VOLT will be part of an exposition of a group of promising Dutch designers. This will take place in the new Salone area of Lambrate among other cutting edge exhibitors. The designers of this group present their work to find international points of sales and design brands.

VOLT is designed by Reinier de Jong and manufactured in collaboration with BOM interiors, a company specialising in made to measure furniture for both private and professional market. Reinier de Jong works on both architectural and product design. Key words are subtlety, flexibility, ingenuity and spaciousness. Reinier de Jong has designed several acclaimed furniture designs and award-winning architectural designs.

    talk about missing the boat!

  • So simple! I’d like to know how to make the simple detail of connection plate to leg. Very good color too!

  • So simple and very good color !

  • Capstick

    I love it. I need one in my home right now!

  • jack

    is it wierd that these are made of plywood made to look like something that has been folded, rather than something that has just actually been folded…?

  • Hayden

    cv – agreed. Didn’t that boat sail about 5 years ago ?

  • @jack – I do think that is weird. Obviously it brings up the old honest material argument; there’s a line where it’s ok but I’m not sure where it is yet.
