Riad table by Acdo

March 8th, 2017 by retail design blog

Riad table is an enhancement of the traditional manufacturing process and graphic motifs of hydraulic tiles. These concrete tiles emerged in Mediterranean Europe in the early 20th century as an industrial response to old mosaic floors. The drawings of Riad are inspired by traditional designs that can be found from the Alhambra of Granada to the Great Mosque of Damascus.

The idea behind this product is to de-contextualise the construction material – hydraulic tile– by isolating and objectifying it. The result is a table for indoors and outdoor whose hexagonal shape offers the possibility to reproduce a ‘raised floor’ combining as many pieces as desired.

Design: Acdo / Alvaro Catalán de Ocón
