Elegance and refinement of porcelain for modern home environments
Furniture made of porcelain? In its latest design co-operation, FÜRSTENBERG proves that porcelain is about more than sophisticated dining. The porcelain manufacturer developed the pleated effect PLISAGO side table, which is made entirely of high-quality manufactured porcelain, together with Studio Besau-Marguerre. The luxurious design brings the elegance and refinement of porcelain into modern home environments, and is honoured with the German Design Award 2019 in Gold in the Furniture category. PLISAGO is available in two different sizes and in a miniature version, all in classic white or delicate rose.
PLISAGO is a side table in which the form represents the design, and the design represents the form: two interlocking cones form the basic shape in three-dimensional pleats that determines the whole shape of the table. “We want to present the softness, the poetic, the delicacy, the sensuousness, the fragility of porcelain, and so have given our side table a soft, textile character. Pleats unite these aspects,” is how the design duo explains its creation. The lavish design demands absolute precision in its manufacture. The pleated, almost textile structure of PLISAGO and the matt glaze create a charming contrast to the diamond-polished top.
