Second prize: 2016 Design Contest

Second prize 2016 Andreu World Contest


A design with multiple possibilities
. This is the key of the Makila table project of Alcides Farje from Donostia (Guipuzcoa-Spain), winner of the second prize of the Design Contest.

Its balance, harmony and singularity have been some of the aspects highlighted by the jury of this edition, who valued "especially its industrial vision and its ability to personalize and adapt to any environment from the outset." The Makila table also stands out for its ability to create different pieces in one piece.

Makila in Euskera is the word that is used to define the support that is used to support walking and in a more particular way also serves to call the staff that is used to percussion the txalaparta, a traditional instrument of Basque culture.

The Makila table has been inspired by the geometry of these circular section poles, simulating their movement by hitting the wooden planks. However, the poles do not hit the table, they invert their position and are the support of the table tops.
