This series of tables is given life with the aim of objectifying the Alhambra terrazzo, by recalling the pop aesthetics of the 80s. Inspired by the shape of Nara table by Shiro Kuramata, Nara 2.0 stays true to the original design, though its material composition is different. The use of unbroken bottles brings to light unusual drawings, depending on the applied cuttings. The accuracy of the industrial processes used to reveal the table “hidden” inside the terrazzo block contrasts with the apparent randomness of the achieved sections. The wide range of cutting angles arise from this randomness. Alvaro Catalan de Ocon plays with the iconic design of the table, while seeking new drawings generated by other pure shapes such as the circle and the triangle. The round, gentle sections are in contrast with the severity and hardness of the sharp edges. These versions – Nara 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, etc. – open the door to an infinity of possibilities that may evolve towards increasingly bold designs.
