Even though the London Design Festival is done and over with, Marvin Gardens is still reveling in a few charming items that were displayed at the nine-day celebration of creativity. One such item that Inhabitat came across at the Lab Craft Exhibition is the gorgeously elegant, yet sustainable, King Louis Table made from recyclable cardboard from Gareth Neal. It’s rich, dark color and entertaining texture is enough to add a regal air to any space.
Harking back to the grand ol’days when the French monarch reigned supreme, designer Gareth Neal gives these pieces a modern day twist using 3D computer drawing and CNC processing to create a sturdy cardboard honeycomb structure for these tables. An eye-catching, tongue-in-cheek creation fusing the old with the new, the Louis makes the perfect addition to any modernist home looking for a bit of irony.
