Craft + Manufacture: Industrial Design by Foster + Partners
The Nomos table, first industrial design product conceived by Foster + Partners, will be one of the main characters at the Craft + Manufacture exhibition launching at the prestigious Aram Gallery in London on May 12th.
Designed in 1986, with its structure conceived as a solid zoomorphic skeleton, the Nomos table’s striking appearance and refined design have made it one of the most recognisable products of international design obtaining the Compasso d’Oro prize in 1987.
Nomos is highly adaptable to various applications, from individual desks to multiple workstations. The tubular metal structure can be paired with several tops typologies: from tempered extra-clear glass to high pressure laminates, stones and cement.
Other than chrome and white or dark grey powder lacquer, the structure is enriched by a new elegant polished black nickel finish.
Nomos is part of the Foster + Partners exhibition which will host an array of furniture, fittings, products and lighting developed over the years since the first table sketch in 1981. Models, prototypes, photographs, and finished products will illustrate the industrial design team history, philosophy and integrated approach to design across many diverse projects.
Aram Gallery, founded in 2002 in the heart of Covent Garden by Daniel Charny and Zeev Aram, is an independent gallery that throughout the years has gained international recognition and today represent a privileged space dedicated to experimentation and contemporary design and art.
