MARIONET – SIDETABLE
The name giver of MARIONET shows how to do it: only the connections
between the (body) parts, joints and threads hold together the marionette;
if one of the components is missing it collapses. This principle is
equally applicable to the side table, which Simon Busse designed for the
Mox Company: Only if all its components interact the table stands firmly.
Three flat wooden legs other form the basis and are brought into position
by a connective element. A hook on the top side of the connective element
holds a coloured elastic band – the marionette’s string. The band runs
through the wooden legs towards a tabletop and turns into a carrying
handle on the upper side. In order to lock this fragile structure, the
tabletop is bevelled downwards, the legs are kept in position and the
entire table stands firmly.
