Luna Table for CITCO at Salone del Mobile 2014

The Luna table has evolved from the research of abstraction evident throughout Hadid’s repertoire. The pristine surface of the tabletop is her starting point; the established constant to which Hadid applies the forces that inform the table’s structure. These forces explore the relationship between planar and volume, transforming the rigid two-dimensional surface into the third dimension. With the formal language of morphological affiliation, these abstractions reach downward and extend to the ground; expressing the inherent connectivity within all of Hadid’s work.

In polished white Carrara marble, the fluid geometries of the Luna table’s legs dissolve the conventional differentiation between structure and skin, their generating forces transferred through the stone to impact the rigid plane of the tabletop. These smaller indentations within this surface reflect the materiality of the piece, the marble seeming to absorb much of the dynamic forces that define the table’s composition, creating functional bowls within the tabletop.
