jouir tables // 2013 // in production // jouir translates to pleasure in french. the idea behind this table was that of continuity. the design you see was arrived at through a highly iterative process of addition and subtraction. it embodies the philosophy of embracing the features that give us strength rather than attempting to hide them. thus the welding seam that connects the single sheet of steel is beautified using melted bronze. the tables are highly sturdy and owing to the material properties, it is meant to be passed on over the years. the side table can even be used as seating in a pinch.
