Industrial design is very fashionable today but we usually imagine such things as something rough and manly. But this collection by Roch Bobois is exquisite and exclusive, it looks like no other – a mix of industrial and futuristic style. It’s a collection of dining and coffee tables called Astrolab with a glass top that opnely displays for all to see is the intricate retro-futuristic cog and pulley mechanism that drives the opening and closing of the Astrolab extension leaves. The mechanism becomes the most important and beautiful decoration of the table. Gentle, geometric, high tech and aesthetic – isn’t that an awesome mix for a piece?
