Right Angles coffee table by Jason Phillips Design

December 30th, 2011 by retail design blog

We recently received a minimalist coffee table idea from Jason Phillips Design, entitled Right Angles. Here is the information we were sent in the press release: “In geometry, a right angle is an angle formed by two straight lines that intersect at exactly 90 degrees. As a rotation, a right angle corresponds to a quarter turn, as in a quarter of a full circle.

I love exploring dimension, and what comes across as a simple table is actual a painstakingly balanced series of abrupt changes in direction. My intention was to go against one’s natural desire to create a standard path metal bars would move to create a table. The asymmetry works because the angles are so exact.

As I worked and reworked the lines, I realized there was opportunity to play with functional glass shelves at different heights. Right Angles is a cocktail table and it measures 48x34x17″h. Constructed from cold-pressed steel and finished in matte black. Other finishes can be custom ordered.” Minimalist and practical, the table is a lovely addition to any modern interior, provided it is inhabited by someone who likes to dust often.
