Yoann Henry Yvon plays with the simplicity and movement of curves giving the impression that the One Piece Coffee Table is a non-stop transforming object. Change the position of the table’s main curve or just your point of view and the table gets a different shape. The 25 year old French designer explains how his desire of creating something unique with just only one panel led him to create the One Piece Coffee Table.

Majestic & Reverence coffee table
Easily to pill up!
"Majestic & Reverence coffee table"(one piece concept)is just an attractive, practical and optical illusion furniture for any space. One Piece series were born in the search for a concept based on the possibility to create something with only one panel... The inspiration for this project was based on the simplicity and the movement of the curves. The main curve of the coffee table changes all the time, depending of your point of view. Ideal for people who want to give contemporary touches on their living space or on their outdoor garden.

    These are basic renderings. Everybody can design anything if it isn't put to the test of manufacturability and usage. This is Air Design.

    zuy: thank you , but this Air Design epidemic on the web is worrying me. Junior designers all over want to become the new Ora Ito by publishing fake projects as real ones, sometimes demonstrating their complete lack of technical skills in the process. tsss tsss

    Sorry for the others... Finally a designer which surprises us with simple and so beautiful products. Zuy, sorry but your comments about Alexis Tricoire and Michael Bihain are completely except subject. This concept and design are so fresh...Zuy, please be objective and constructive and not destructor. That's not the proposal of Yatzer.
