2πr revolutionizes the classic way of eating sitting at a table, involving the consumer to become part of the project.Around the table there is sharing, communication and conviviality; any meal eaten, even in the street, is a social occasion to "be celebrated".
Having taken apart the classic archetype of table as a unique and essential base that rests on flour legs, the circular top has been isolated and has to be "worn" using adjustable straps by at least three (and a maximum of five) people so that there is balance and the social event can take place.
The 2πr table will allow sharing food and establishing interpersonal relations triggered off by the act of supporting the table; in addition, through the rotation-shifting movement of the central surface, a further game of interaction between the people at the table is triggered off.
The components of the table are a circular top of light treated wood (diameter 160 cm) to which, through a threaded rod two mobile circular tops (diameter 80 cm) will be connected. The five slots will house the fabric straps adjustable in length.
The members of the 9pm+gm collective are the architects Pasquale Buonapane, Francesca Massi and Mariella Gentile.
They are a consolidated working team, made up of experimentation, knowledge, designs and works ranging from architecture to interiors, from design to graphics and multimedia.
They met on their Erasmus year in Paris and since then have shared experiences and projects although living in cities at other ends of Italy.Their evolution in design includes processes of interpretation and learning that can provide formal coherence to space, offering a concrete and different result each time.
