London based designer Hugo Passos has come out with a charming new table inspired by fine art. Drawing from the colorful, geometric paintings of Dutch artist Piet Mondrian, this design is called the Piet Side Table. Passos’ table mimics the geometric, colorful style of the De Stijl art movement, which Mondrian was closely associated with. The table has an asymmetrical leg structure made from solid walnut and a bright matt lacquer top. This design is available in white, black, red, blue, or yellow; naturally these colors are derived from Mondrian’s paintings.
I am a huge fan of the intersection of fine art and design; and this table combines them perfectly! Passos has transformed Modrian’s timeless, iconic paintings into what is sure to become an iconic piece of furniture. I am hoping to get my hands on one of these someday- the yellow is calling my name!
