Ray

--2015

RAY comes from stingray, a marine animal in a diamond shape and responds to our fascination with the aqueous forms of the marine world and asymmetry in nature.

Conceived as a multifunctional table, it consists of an ergonomic bottom drawer that slides from one end to another, where objects are stored in a cotton fishing net.

The legs, designed as fins, solve by means of combining two rectangular tubular profiles, support the whole.The top of simple lines hides the complexity of the bottom.

RAY has been built by three local artisans: cabinet-maker Frank Buschmann has created with his own hands the top in ash wood. Mihai Herrero has produced the legs and sliding drawer with a metallic structure with tubular steel and lacquered in white. Finally, the 100% cotton net has been sewed by hand based on ancient techniques of San Sebastian fishermen.
