Based on the desire to develop a series of tables to complement the Palissade outdoor furniture collection, French design duo Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec teamed up with HAY to create the Cone Table. Its solid base and ultra-thin steel tabletop share the same graphic design idiom as the rest of the series, enabling the table to be strong without being bulky and elegant without being fragile. The series comprises various sizes with round and square tabletops; all featuring a stabilising concrete base. Specifically designed for outdoor use, the powder-coated steel has a protective outdoor primer for optimal durability and resilience. The collection is available in three different colours and is ideal for terraces, balconies, gardens, cafés and public spaces.
Ronan et Erwan Bouroullec were born in Quimper, France respectively in 1971 and 1976. As soon as Ronan graduated from the Ecole Nationale des Arts Décoratifs, he began working alone, progressively assisted by Erwan, still a student at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts of Cergy Pontoise. Their collaboration is a constant dialogue, nourished by their single identities and strived towards a common goal. They met Giulio Cappellini in 1997, while showing the Disintegrated Kitchen at the Salon du Meuble in Paris. This was the starting point of a regular cooperation that gave birth to various projects.
