The starting point for Dan is the circle, which Delcourt breaks down in the manner of a figurative artist to investigate its expressive possibilities.
The rounded and concave legs and the crosspiece that connects them define the base, enriching the overall design of the table. The contrasting finishes of the supporting legs - Licorice opaque-painted aluminium for the outside and bright Copper or Light Bronze-varnished for the inside - create an exciting game of lights, illuminating the area below the top, which is generally in the shade.
The tone of the supporting structure is recalled in the perimeter band of the top with a subtle variation in the materials: the wood replaces the aluminium and frames a precious surface customisable in Calacatta marble, Black back-painted glass, Licorice or Dove Grey flamed ash, matt ebony.
Dan comes with a round top in three different diameters and with a rectangular top with soft corners, in three different dimensions.
Christophe DelcourtChristophe Delcourt was born in Saint-Maur-des-Fossés, France in 1966. He is the designer known for handcrafted furniture and lighting that demonstrate a respect for the environment and a passion for French craft tradition. He graduated from the drama school and attended the theater where he later realized design was his true calling. Delcourt launched his studio in the heart of Marais—Paris’s 7th arrondissement in 1996. His work combines raw materials and elegant lines, and he relies heavily on nature and natural materials to shape a design with depth, emotion, and warmth—to inform his work.
