Furniture Trends: Geometric Shapes On Table Bases

FLUXO table base

 Forget classic pedestal bases, table bases just got interesting. Meet the new trend of geometric shapes on table bases.

Pedestal bases are traditionally chosen for hospitality spaces because they do not obstruct diners’ chairs in the way that conventional legs can. They are also  more flexible, if tables are pushed together, for instance, diners can sit all around the combined table as there are no legs in the way. Pedestal bases are also easier to move around without damage. Dragging a 4 legged base causes damage and eventually loss of the trailing leg.  Both Fluxo & Hey featured here, still satisfy this criteria but add an interesting twist to the classic base by branching out in geometric shapes.

The Fluxo table base featured above draws inspiration from the concept of balance, with traditional elements. Distinctive by design, Fluxo uses primary geometric shapes, starting from the section of its stem-like base, to generate a form with clean and minimalist lines.

Made in die-cast aluminium, Fluxo has a stable structure and a distinctive personality, with a subtle and elegant design. Fluxo comes in three heights. Various colours are available in the powder coated version, alongside a polished aluminium.

Though most table bases are often metal, wooden bases are also available usually with fairly basic design appropriate for traditional pub interiors, although more sophisticated, turned bases are also obtainable. Hey is different.

Hey is an alternative to tables with a metal base and more traditional wooden bases. It's made entirely from natural wood and is specifically designed for modern restaurants and food courts. All versions of the table are made from one moulding. The wide plywood is cut into three or four components of the leg, forming a three legged base for tables with a round top and four legged for tables with a square top. The legs of both variants can be finished in two was: semi-circular and sharp or tapering downwards. The table base and top can be coloured different for extra character.
