Boiacca is a design exercise about the study of the mechanical properties of one material to push it to its absolute limit, creating something surprising whilst striving to sustain a minimal form and back it up with superior structural integrity.
Created by Italian design studio Lucidi Pevere for Italian furniture brand Kristalia, Boiacca is an indoor or outdoor table made in entirely of concrete with a 13mm thick top, perfectly flat and with high resistance to bending. The designers explain its details:
The fulcrum of the project are the four legs which, as if they were moulded in plastic, thanks to the patient work of material reduction and the use of special steel inserts, reach a great thinness.
In addition, the frame has an impressive modularity that allows the table model to adapt to very different dimensions, but all of them resulting in an extraordinarily simple and light appearance.
