Coffee tables are to lounges what chandeliers are to ceilings. They anchor and centre a room like no other furniture piece. Laguna’s sensually organic and meandering form represents a body of water or lagoon, its smooth black metal table top represents the still surface of water, its unknown depths and mysteries.
Laguna was borne out of a collaboration with ARRCC interior design studio for their project at Cheetah Plains. Set in Sabi Sands, Cheetah Plains is a luxury safari destination for which OKHA design & interiors created custom and bespoke furniture. OKHA’s Creative Director Adam Court says, ‘The shape was motivated by a strong physical context, by landscape mass as well as the project’s internal spatial layout and was therefore informed both by practicality and nature’s poetry.’ Laguna can be customised in a range of materials including wood, stone, metal, mirror and reinforced glass. Here Laguna is shown with a blackened aluminium top and patinated aluminium legs. “The legs and table body will always be made from two different finishes or materials as each represents a different physical element, the legs rise above the table top to enhance that feeling of landscape, of different masses…the flat horizontal surface of the table (water) is enveloped by the surrounding landscape which rises above the surface of the water,” adds Adam.For more information visit okha.com
