NOM Side Tables
NOM is a series of stackable furniture. Each object is folded from a spread of laser cut aluminium sheet, which then bends into the final form using a bending mould. The concept of the project is to combine straight origami like folds with natural folds. This is achieved by folding the legs of the objects in planned and exact folds which creates side effects of stretching and bending in the material. In other words, by folding the legs of the objects the surface above reacts naturally to the folding act. This integration between strict and natural folds creates a steady construction from one hand and a soft, organic, upholstery like shape from the other.
