X. A sound, a symbol, a meaning. All enclosed in a shape that is always recognisable by its intrinsic, essential stability. Rather than the mathematical variable, our reference is to the very archetype of a supporting structure, just like a circle would stand for a wheel. Eex presents a collection of contract tables that also have a certain vocation for domestic contexts, with square or round tops available in two heights and suitable for different uses: either as side or dining table, in the black, white or light gray finish, in which polypropylene and metal components blend into a single colour. The top has no sharp corners or edges, and its shape is further emphasised by a light, elegant mirror-polished outline. A soft, rounded shape that lets water drops and dew slip away, free of any grooves and unnecessary decorations, ideal for a practical and comfortable use. The simplicity of its iconic shape allows for a perfect combination with all of the TOOU seats, creating ideal solutions both for indoor and outdoor applications.
EEX Collection, design by Simone Viola
Simone Viola was born in Mendrisio, Switzerland in 1985.
After a rigorous training in industrial design in Milan and through his collaboration during various architectural and design studies, he began to gain experience in Switzerland and abroad. In 2011, he founded the Simone Viola Design Studio, focusing on industrial projects for furniture and accessories. His philosophy leans toward research on the materials and technical aspects related to the development of the project, conceptually guided by historical and artistic references. This approach produces the most natural connection to contemporary design, where the object is not the expression of a trend, but a long-lasting fusion of form and the intended use. Soft, natural elegant shapes and an elevated attention to details characterizes his work and a continuous optimization of the development phase allows the realization of high quality and generously accommodating products.
