Forward-thinking design: Andreu World Reverse tables
Andreu World’s Reverse is an award-winning collection of tables with sculptural presence and great versatility. Designed by Piergiorgio Cazzaniga, Reverse includes a range of sizes and finishes to suit commercial, residential and hospitality environments. Cazzaniga’s work is defined by beauty, simplicity and functionality as he looks to mid-century Scandinavian and American design and the pared-back aesthetic of the Japanese style while expressing his own personality and point of view. And these characteristics certainly ring true in the Reverse tables as they embody elegance, stability and adaptability. The collection is characterised by its cylindrical base, made from 100 per cent recyclable polyethylene. These columns come in varying heights and widths depending on the purpose and function of the table, and the tabletops are available in different finishes, sizes and shapes. To create a play on materials, textures and colours, the base is available in six matte or high-gloss lacquered finishes; tabletops include lacquered plywood, oak, ceramic, marble, high-pressure laminate, glass and solid surface; and standard shapes are square, elliptical and round. Custom tabletops can also be requested. Reverse includes bar, coffee, occasional, dining and conference tables. Adding even more versatility, the columns can be used alone, in pairs or in small groups to support larger tabletops. Wire management and connectivity is also available, making them an effective choice for corporate environments. The Reverse collection is also suited for indoor or outdoor use, as well as a wide array of residential and hospitality spaces. Reverse Conference has an elliptical-shaped tabletop offered in 14 standard sizes, while the Reverse Conference Lounge is a more laidback table for informal and relaxed meetings. Reverse Conference Lounge won a Gold in the Best of NeoCon 2016 occasional tables category, and in Interior Design’s 2016 Best of Year Awards for contract/side tables. Reverse Occasional is available in two base heights (450mm and 550mm) and two tabletop sizes for use in lounges and collaboration spaces, while Reverse Coffee offers a lower height (350mm). Reverse Dining and Reverse Bar are a versatile choice for hospitality, residential and commercial dining or socialising spaces, as can be seen at 12-Micron designed by SJB Reverse. Here, Reverse tables are configured to form long dining tables, while alternating square and circular tables showcasing a grid-like effect and curved design features that are seen throughout the venue.
