Colossus Table

$12,821 - $14,472



Description

If the name Colossus sounds distant and aloof, that was the farthest thing from Chris Martin’s mind. “I came up with the idea for a massive, solid round table as the world seems especially chaotic right now,” explains the cofounder and head designer of Massproductions. “The world needs big tables that bring lots of people together.” With its monumental concrete pedestal base and durable laminate top, Colossus more than lives up to its name —the smaller of the 2 versions, measuring more than 6 feet in diameter, accommodates 12 people. Suited to expansive homes as well as contract settings, the table was also honored with the Swedish Design Award for furniture of the year.

“Our goal is to use industrial processes to create furniture which people can get excited about, something that gives them pride of ownership,” says Chris Martin of Stockholm-based Massproductions. “You can do that with a hand-crafted piece, but for us the satisfaction comes from achieving it with an industrially produced article.” Chris, an Englishman, and Swedish business partner Magnus Elebäck first met as independent consultants and eventually put their accumulated knowledge to work for themselves in 2009 by opening their own furniture company, Massproductions. 

Within modernist design codes, they strive for a “dignified simplicity” and their emblematic Tio Chair took the prestigious Golden Chair award from the Swedish Association of Architects. Also cognizant of environmental factors, a core concept is to produce “cleverly and in volume” to emphasize sustainability as well as social ethics, Chris says. "We believe that responsible and rational mass production benefits the consumer, the factory worker and everyone in-between.”
