Deniz Aktay

German architect and product designer Deniz Aktay has created a minimal cubic side table that is currently seeking production. The design, titled TADASHI, is a geometric side table with a book shelf in its centre (or stomach). This is achieved by arranging two hollowed wooden cubes at particular angles to generate a multi-purpose table while maintaining a strict minimalist aesthetic.

The more I focused on designing furniture and objects, the more my enthusiasm grew. Over time I figured out that good design for me means finding the right harmony between proportion, material, and functionality. This goes with my demand for simplicity, originality, proper element joining, detailing, and appropriate use of the materials involved.
