Constantine by Silva Bradshaw Performs a Balancing Act

Four legs equally distributed beneath a quadrilateral surface is not the only recipe for a coffee table. Constantine by Silva Bradshaw demonstrates a perfectly capable form that serves its function superbly while offering a little visual intrigue.

The physics of this piece of furniture rely on an angled and elongated semicircular support, attached to the tabletop in an enchanting asymmetry. The weight of the entire piece is offset and stabilized in the interplay of the heavy diagonal and horizontal elements.

Its whitewashed Cristalplant materiality suggests a stark minimalism while the overall shape hints at the opposite. Constantine by Silva Bradshaw has been designed so that the combination of flat and curved surfaces cause the creation of exquisite shadows, bringing dynamism to drab living spaces.
